How the federal government sells off public lands, North Las Vegas uses AI to help translate during meetings, and Gov. Lombardo fights an ethics commission fine.

This week, host Joey Lovato talks with reporter Gabby Birenbaum about a big story she’s been working on about how Congress privatizes federal land for Nevada's urban areas to expand and what deals are being made for that to happen. After that, host Alex Couraud talks with reporter Jannelle Calderón about the City of North Las Vegas using AI to translate for public commenters during meetings. At the end of the show, reporter Tabitha Mueller goes over the ongoing saga between the Nevada Commission on Ethics and Gov. Joe Lombardo for wearing his sheriff's uniform and badge during his run for office.
