- Yep, we have plenty of Fulton Mall talk (I guess this is the last time we can refer to it as the Fulton Mall).
- California's High Speed Rail is knows the way to San Jose and this could mean a big boom for Fresno.
- The Collegian calls Donald Trump "Hitler" and we say "If not them, who?!" Then Donald Munro responds.
- MUSIC BREAK: The Blue (aka Wild Blue Yonder).
- The Tower District has a lack of hipster problem, what can we do?
- Did you feel the earthquakes?
- We finish by "plugging" things up and we make an announcement about the show!

The City Of Fresno rejected a bus banner ad last week and it sent us all to Twitter and Facebook to bitch...so you know we're going to talk about that on Flowing. We also cover a lot of retail closings and openings in Fresno (Asada burittos in Fashion Fair? Yes. That works). One of us also took a trip to Yosemite and will be taking YARTS next time, me thinks. All that and more Fresno talk plus Band Of The Episode: Whitey Morgan.

The Silver Dollar has closed and KuppaJoe's is about to. We remember (or don't remember, as the case may be) those places with some creeper stories and wonder what will happen next. We play some music from the new Ray Appleton's band and The Sleepover Disaster. Also, is it OK that Walmart has opened at Blackstone & Ashlan? What cool stuff will open in Fresno? All this and more Fresness!

Fresno did it. We've got our General Plan 2035 in place (no thanks to a certain Fresno Councilman *cough* BRANDAU). We recorded this moments after the General Plan was voted in, so obviously its a big topic this episode. Oh and you know we are going to talk about Brandau calling people pansies and speaking for big-lot-loving-Fresnans everywhere.
We also play some Swimming In Paint and talk more Fresno.
Thanks for listening!

We play catch-up on some Fresno news as we break down the Fresno Grizzlies losing the SF Giants and gaining Astros. Also!: Fresno continues to make crappy lists, Mayor Swear Bear says yes to same-sex marriage, we hit up some new Fresno restaurants and Mikey rants about Fresno traffic "reports". We also have a music break with Slow Season and talk about Spanspek Festival (October 17th - you should totally go to this!).

The Fulton Mall is 50 and we go after it right off - Woolworths was pimpin'! The "Fresno 40" is finally getting developed. Fresno City Council fails to invest in Fresno's future. The Chief accepts the Ice Bucket Challenge...shirtless. Is anybody going to live in the high-rise apartmenting of the old Security Bank Building? Is downtown Fresno DTF? All this and a music break from the Long Black Veils!
Listen to the Fresnoness.
