Food Fight Breaks Out Over Seattle Compost

The Seattle City Council has delayed a vote on a contract to send the city's food and yard waste to Kittitas County after residents in Cle Elum made it known they were less than thrilled about the plan. With the pushback against taking in Seattle’s compostable waste, what's a garbage planner to do? Seattle Public Utilities Solid Waste Director Tim Croll joins us.

Also this hour: The indigenous people of Seattle — the Duwamish — have won another shot at federal recognition. We talk with Seattle Congressman Jim McDermott, a longtime supporter of federal recognition for the Duwamish Tribe. Pastor Rob Bell joins us to talk religion and politics. Plus, Michael Fagin joins us with a hike to match the week's sunny weather.
