I'll warn ya straight up: We spend some time talking about our hair. Don't worry, after that, we get back to our normal Fresno banter. 

We talk about people getting vaccinated around town and what that means with things opening up. Is there live music in Fresno's near future? What thing would you keep after the Pandemic is over? Measure P is official now so what would be our dream use of Measure P Money? Yes we are still talking about the Tower Theatre and Adventure Church and we bring back our old friend: Bike Lanes!
