Episode transcript

Part One

Oracle Raptors fan
Far from home the Toronto Raptors claw their way to victory over the Golden State Warriors — and become NBA champions for the first time. 

Harassment of mayor
Montreal borough mayor Sue Montgomery responds after a court finds that a Montreal man has been harassing her for decades — but it's not a crime, because she can't prove she was scared enough. 

Part Two

Oracle move
As the Golden State Warriors prepare to move across the Bay to San Francisco, one Oakland woman says it's a bigger loss to her city than last night's loss to the Raptors. 

Prosecutorial bias
In an effort to reduce bias, San Francisco's District Attorney's office stops revealing race, names, and locations to prosecutors before they lay charges. 

Part Three

Encore: author Ben Lerner on his novel
An encore presentation of Carol's conversation with author Ben Lerner — who explains why his novel "10:04" features a fictional protagonist named Ben Lerner.
