How Seattle is launching the rest of the country into space (you're welcome)


Last month, KUOW's Sydney Brownstone broke a story about sexual misconduct allegations against Seattle nightlife entrepreneur Dave Meinert. Since then, six more women have come forward. Sydney joined Bill to talk about the allegations, and whether or not stigma has changed in the wake of #metoo.
