It's opening day for the Dodgers — a group of investors recently bought the team, but how are they coming up with the cash? Twenty years after her unsparing memoir about new motherhood, author Anne Lamott has a follow up book that follows the birth of her first grandchild. KPCC's Josie Huang speaks with downtown LA residents who are not so optimistic about AEG's plans for a football stadium. And, music critic Ann Powers joins us to review the latest releases from Bonnie Raitt and Alabama Shakes.
