State of Affairs 

During this weeks wrap-up of politics in and out of The Golden State, we recap on the Democratic Debate last night in Southern California, and we look back on the historic Impeachment Vote in the House of Representatives and what that means for Californians, all this and more...

Golden State Killer Victims

It's been almost two years since authorities charged then 72-year-old former police officer Joseph DeAngelo with eight counts of first-degree murder. The crimes were connected to the decades-long investigation of the Golden State Killer. For more than 10 years, GSK committed at least 50 rapes, 13 murders and over 100 burglaries all over California. While the serial rapist's first victims were solely women and girls, within a year the attacks focused on couples but while the trauma of the female victims continues to be retold today...little is said about the male victims.

Airbnb Regulations 

Los Angeles only just started enforcing its regulations on Airbnb and other home-sharing sites a handful of weeks ago. The actions came pretty late in the game when many other cities in California and around the country started to crackdown years ago. But now, some of those rules might change already.

LA's Asian Santa tradition is back. Shogun Santa has returned to Little Tokyo after a big loss in the community last year. KPCC's Asian American Communities Correspondent Josie Huang has more. 

Voices of Reason Choir 

The holidays are a time when you're encountering religious music everywhere. Carollers are caroling, "Silent Night' follows you through the aisles of the grocery store and religious choirs are dusting off their sleigh bells. But there's one choir in L.A. that's singing a different kind of tune… contributor Natalie Chudnovsky takes you there. 

Food Friday: Latkes 

Hanukkah begins this Sunday, December 22nd,  at sundown. The festival of lights runs for eight days and is honored by traditions such as playing with dreidels, lighting menorahs and eating tasty morsel...like latkes....those crispy - and oh so delicious - potato pancakes. Elina Shatkin is the food editor for LAist….and an expert on all things Hanukkah and Latkes.
