  • Buckeye Police announced an arrest this week, in a 2016 missing child case. Crystal Wilson, 54, was arrested Monday, after being indicted for allegedly concealing the body of 10-year-old Jesse Wilson.
  • This week marks one year since Phoenix police officer Tyler Moldovan was shot multiple times while in the line of duty. He and his wife recounted the long road to recovery.
  • Will they or won’t they? Governor Doug Ducey confirms he won’t call a special legislative session on the Aggregate Expenditure Limit, unless he knows the votes are there to get it done. This, despite some state lawmakers insisting they do have the votes.

The podcast also looked ahead at what’s to come including the impending end to Title 42 and at the grand reopening of the Phoenix Sky Train at Sky Harbor Airport.

We want to hear from you.
