KNX In Depth: Steve Bannon guilty of contempt--Bruce Springsteen concert ticket prices--FCC to crack down on auto warranty spam calls--In Depth says goodbye to KNX Brand Manager Ken Charles
Steve Bannon, the longtime ally and former adviser to former President Trump, is known for being bombastic and defiant. But those two characteristics didn't serve him well in front of a federal jury. He was just found guilty of contempt charges for defying a Congressional subpoena issued by the January 6th Committee. We go In Depth into what this means for others connected to Donald Trump.  Another January 6th Committee hearing wraps up with lots of people wondering if and when the Justice Department will file any kind of charges against Trump or those closely connected to him.  A business group is speaking out about the likely return of an indoor mask mandate in LA County, saying it could be a big economic set back.  We go In Depth into how public health officials have the challenge to try to limit COVID and monkeypox at the same time. Oh, and polio is back in the U.S.  Don't look at ticket prices to some Bruce Springsteen concerts next year. Ticketmaster's new pricing plan is putting them in the thousands of dollars. The FCC is taking action to try to stop those really annoying auto warranty calls everyone gets.  And we say goodbye, farewell, bon voyage to the man who's led KNX the past seven years. Ken Charles is leaving us but he won't be forgotten.  To learn more about listener data and our privacy practices visit: Learn more about your ad choices. Visit

KNX In Depth: Blame Millennials for high inflation -- A brutal heatwave in Northern Europe is an ominous sign for climate change -- Joe Manchin, the ex-boyfriend Democrats keeping going back to
Republicans blame President Joe Biden ... the president blames Russia and greedy companies ... but we may now, finally have the right group to blame for stubbornly high inflation: MILLENNIALS! We'll explain and go in depth on why high prices are the fault of our younger colleagues. The U.S. Secret Service is denying it, but there are now several confirmed reports that agents deleted several text messages centered around the January 6th, even after they were ordered to preserve all communications about the insurrection. And it's going to hit 100-degrees, and then some, in several spots across Northern Europe over the next week ... and these are places that aren't supposed to get that hot, even in summertime. Is climate change to blame? Speaking of climate change, at the end of today's In Depth we'll look at how Senator Joe Manchin has once again stuck it to his fellow Democrats by refusing to support sweeping legislation meant to stem the effects of climate change. We'll look at some very interesting research that links violent crime rates and heart health in big cities. And the man described as a butcher and blamed by President Biden for the murder of journalist Jamal Khashoggi, Saudi Arabia's Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman got a widely noticed ... and widely criticized ... fist bump from the president in Riyadh today.

KNX In Depth: LA's animal shelters in dire straits -- LA County close to becoming an area of high COVID spread -- California's red-hot real estate market shows signs of cooling off
Yesterday we told you about thousands of beagles that need rescuing in Virginia ... but today our dog story hits closer to home: LA city animal shelters, short on money, staff and volunteers, are keeping dogs locked up in their kennels for weeks or even months at a time ... without letting them out for long walks or to play. So we'll go In Depth. LA County will likely be designated as an area of high COVID spread today, and with hospitalizations from the virus slowly creeping up, the return of the indoor mask mandate is possible. But will anyone actually enforce it? And at the end of today's show we're going to try to answer some questions about the growing confusion over COVID vaccines: should you run out to get a second booster shot, or wait until the next crop of newly developed vaccines are available? Some of California's most sizzling real estate markets are finally showing signs of cooling off ... if you've been sitting on the sidelines, is now the time to try to buy a new house? Russia launched a missile attack far away from the front lines in Ukraine, hitting a town in the western part of the country with seemingly no military value, killing dozens of civilians. We'll get an update as that war grinds on. And we'll check in on President Biden's very complicated trip to the Middle East. To learn more about listener data and our privacy practices visit: Learn more about your ad choices. Visit

KNX In Depth: Inflation shows no signs of slowing down -- 4,000 traumatized beagles need your help -- BMW to make use of seat warmers in its cars a subscription service
We've been telling you for weeks about steadily declining gas prices here in Southern California and across the country ... but apparently those high gas prices are still having a major economic impact because inflation for the month of June continued at a record setting pace. We'll go In Depth on what has been the weirdest American economy in recent memory. Over 4-thousand Beagles, who just survived horrible conditions at a research facility in Virginia, are looking for loving forever homes .. we'll get you the details. And Starbucks is closing stores here in Los Angeles and other West Coast cities because rampant homelessness has become too much for their staffers to handle. California will become the first state in the country to formally move back the start time for high schools and middle schools ... we'll look at how a little extra sleep could go a long way for teenagers, and their parents. BMW is going to start charging its customers in several countries a subscription fee if owners want to use their cars' seat warmers. That's right--they're going to charge you to use the seat warmers ... in your own car. And at the end of today's show, MIT researchers predicted 50 years ago that there would be a full-scale, global societal collapse here on Earth by 2040. We're going to talk with a modern day researcher who checked their data and concluded ... yup, it's all looking pretty grim for us.
