Bill Clinton is known for his skills behind a podium but how much of that is talent and how much is learned? We speak to a speech coach about tricks politicians use to make their talks memorable; In Clinton's speech to the DNC, he claimed that the US economy produced more than 60 million jobs since the early sixties. Is that true?; KPCC's Frank Stoltze has the second in his series on prison realignment; The City of Los Angeles will not be closing medical marijuana clinics since supporters gathered enough signatures to halt the ban, but new research on these clinics may affect how the public views the issue; Finally, we'll get the latest tech news with John Moe and talk sports with the Sklars.
