Today's panel featured Claudia Balducci, Zaki Hamid, Bill Radke and Ijeoma Oluo

On Wednesday Seattle media devoted their coverage to people experiencing  homelessness. That same day billionaire Paul Allen announced he would invest $1 million to build 13 units in Columbia City for people who are homeless. Is this a workable solution?

Earlier this year two Seattle police officers shot and killed a man named Che Taylor. This week the Seattle Police Department’s Force Review Board ruled that the shooting was “reasonable.” Are these shootings happening because the police have a problem with implicit bias?      

The Sound Transit 3 plan is ready for your ballot this November, but are we ready for it? Is Sound Transit moving too fast with this major transportation plan?

Also, when will we start leaving seal pups alone?

We'll tackle these subjects and more on Week in Review.

Listen to the live discussion Friday at noon. Follow @KUOW and add your comments and questions using #KUOWwir (we may share your tweets on air). Audio from the show will be available online to listen or podcast by 3 p.m.
