Here’s what’s happening in the Bay Area, as curated by KALW news:

California voter registration soaring as June 7 primary approaches // East Bay Times

"Californians are registering to vote in breathtaking numbers not seen since the Reagan Revolution, as the no-holds-barred presidential primary season and tech-based outreach efforts have rousted more than 1 million people from their political slumber."

Eli Wirtschafter

The East Bay’s congressional representative Barbara Lee (CA-13) introduced a bill last year that would greatly expand access to abortions. It gets rid of what’s called the Hyde Amendment, the restriction on abortion spending by the federal government.

On the February 26th edition of Your Call, it’s our Friday media roundtable. This week, we’ll have a conversation about media coverage of the presidential primaries. With the presidential elections in full swing, how are the media scrutinizing the candidates’ records on major issues? We’ll also discuss the heated debate over freedom of speech in India, following the arrest of several students over the demonstrations at one of India’s most prestigious universities. Join the conversation, on the next Your Call, with Rose Aguilar and you.

Hey guys, WIll Durst here with a few choice words about awards season. You'd best be advised to hunker in a bunker wearing a Kevlar overcoat, because gold plated statues are being tossed about like air kisses at a gown fitting. Like clouds of bathroom hair spray in the Beverly Hill bathroom during the nominee luncheons. Like jaded eyes at a press screening of Transformers 4.

Hey guys, 

Will Durst here to ask the burning question that's on the lips of pretty much every American today-and that question is, who's going to be the democratic presidential nominee in 2016? Because politically, not enough stuff is going on right now, so it's critical we gaze down the road a bit and try to figure out what's gonna happen a scant 38 months down the line. And it makes sense!
