Mayor Jenny Durkan makes a wager on the Storm.

Mayor Durkan's friendly bet

We had questions for the mayor about the streetcar... but first and more importantly, how about that Storm, amirite?

Seattle Mayor Jenny Durkan joins us to talk about her wager with the Mayor of Washington, D.C., Muriel Bowser, over the WNBA finals. We also talk about what's going on with the Seattle streetcar project and why the city is being sued over the open meetings law.

To anyone who grew up on The Princess Bride, the word "inconceivable" will be forever linked to Inigo Montoya's gentle "You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means." Whether or not you're a fan of Andre the Giant movies, we all have those words. We use them wrong, either with creeping doubt, or (worse) with brash confidence. Kathryn Petras, co-author of the book That Doesn't Mean What You Think It Means, joined "Says You!" host Gregg Porter to talk about why we're so prone to checking each other (and worrying about our own words).

Last month, an Austrian woman stopped running. She had finished running around a single block in Queens more than 55 hundred times. The race driving her is called the Self-Transcendence 3100 Mile Race; the documentary about the race, by director Sanjay Rawal, is called 3100: Run and Become. Rawal joined us along with Daulot Fountain, longtime Seattle runner.
