KNX In Depth
Wednesday, August 21st
When you think of the opioid addiction crisis in America, you might not think about dentists.  But dentists are being blamed, in part, on worsening that crisis because of years of over-prescribing opioid-based painkillers..............especially when it comes to a pretty common oral surgery procedure that most of us have endured:  removing your wisdom teeth.  So we will go In Depth on weaning dentists off of opioid prescriptions.

One of the richest men in the world has a dire warning when it comes to the massive wealth gap in the United States:  the American dream is lost, and the gap between the richest and poorest Americans is a national emergency.

And when it comes to the fight between California and the Trump administration on requiring cleaner and more fuel efficient cars...........California appears to be winning.

Congresswoman Katie Hill was part of the "blue wave" freshman class of 2018 and has taken full advantage of her first year serving on Capitol Hill to push an ambitious agenda.  But the Congresswoman from Santa Clarita and Simi Valley has a target on her back: she flipped a district that had been held by Republicans since 1993, and they are extremely eager to get it back.

As part of our continuing series talking to Southern California members of Congress when they're back home for the August recess, we have Congresswoman Hill coming up, in studio.
