Electric cars: Their rise, fall, and rebirth. Plus: A new memoir about growing up brown and gay in L.A.

View descriptionShare

In this weekend edition: We visit the Wende Museum in Culver City where historians are keeping an ongoing archive of the Cold War, including relics brought to Southern California by families fleeing communist regimes. 

Electric cars are all the rage now, but did you know they've been around for over a century? We'll explain why the industry stalled, and what we've learned since…

Then, we hear from sociologist Anthony Ocampo about his new memoir that captures what it was like to grow up brown and gay…and the child of immigrants… in the 90s and 2000s in Los Angeles.
