On today's show, three men want to be Fresno's next mayor. We kickoff our look at the race to lead California's fifth largest city, with the one political outsider in  the race - pastor and community leader activist H. Spees. Does his vision for Fresno's future match yours?

We also learn from California Healthline Reporter David Gorn about a change starting this month to a state program that provides care to autistic children that has some parents upset and what it means for the Valley. FM89s's Ezra David Romero reports on an almond variety that could harm the bee industry.  Plus the Rogue Festival begins its wacky run. Rogue producer Jonathon Hogan joins the conversation.
