A week of hearings, arenas and 'dairy, sugar-flavored somethings'

Bill Radke reviews the week’s news with Marilyn Strickland, the President and CEO of The Seattle Metropolitan Chamber of Commerce. Monica Guzman, the co-founder of the Seattle newsletter The Evergrey and Jessyn Farrell, former Washington State representative.  

On Thursday Dr. Christine Blasey Ford sat in front of the Senate Judiciary Committee and testified that Judge Brett Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her nearly forty years ago. Following her testimony, Judge Kavanaugh vehemently denied the allegations.

It was an emotional, heated and partisan 24 hours that eventually lead to Arizona's Sen. Jeff Flake calling for an FBI investigation of the allegations before the full Senate votes on Judge Kavanaugh’s Supreme Court nomination. What have these confirmation hearings meant for America?

In local news, the Seattle City Council voted to allow a developer to revamp KeyArena. The number of people riding bikes around Seattle is surprisingly down. And should businesses be responsible for picking up used needles? Or should the city?

Finally: Would you eat a mac-and-cheese-flavored candy cane? What about a clam-flavored one?
