Segment 1: The Media Critics discuss Pompeo, the Washington Post, impeachment and more.
U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo's behavior towards NPR's Mary Louise Kelly was a hot topic in this discussion with the Media Critics.

Segment 2, beginning at 22:11: Getting to know San Francisco
The Super Bowl is nearly upon us, and fans are going crazy — none more than those living in San Francisco and Kansas City. Today's first ever host-to-host segment with KQED's Michael Krasny gave a look at housing and immigration similarities between the two cities, but also lots and lots of football.
