On the heels of a busy Day One tour of Seattle and a trio of executive orders, new Mayor Jenny Durkan tells host Joni Balter, "You ain't seen nothing yet." During a wide-ranging discussion Durkan weighs in on affordable housing, upzones, a free-college program, taxes, transportation, police reform and preserving Seattle's soul amidst skyrocketing growth. Then, local author Daniel James Brown shares the story behind his bestseller "The Boys in the Boat," an inspiring tale of the underdog, Depression-era, University of Washington men's rowing team that captured Olympic gold. Brown explains the book - which has been optioned for a feature film - is hung up in a Hollywood tangle involving Harvey Weinstein's company. Plus, he opens up about his exhaustive writing process and what he's working on next.
