This week on the VOSD Podcast, hosts Scott Lewis, Andrew Keatts and Andrea Lopez-Villafaña are joined by local reporters Alain Stephens and Cristina Kim to talk about happy holiday things like bathrooms, racist deeds and guns. Happy Thanksgiving!

This comes as a new disease is spreading among the city’s homelessness population that is caused by exposure to human feces.
Kim, a KPBS reporter, laid out the facts of her recent series that showed how explicit housing deeds were in San Diego that barred certain races of people from neighborhoods; some of these deeds are still around today.
And Stephens, from gun violence news outlet The Trace, explained ghost guns — and shared recent reporting he’s done on Black militias in the U.S.
