Two different pods here! On FAQ NYC, Rosa Goldensohn of The City comes in to explain how New York City’s blowing $369 million to save $30 million on a niche transportation system that charges $2.75 per ride that the city pays $13 to provide, and state Senator Alessandra Biaggi calls in to discuss how $175 billion of state budget sausage gets ground up.

And on the debut of Just Us, a highly irregular new podcast looking inside the justice system, Victoria Bekiempis and Alex Brook Lynn talk with legendary courts reporter Christina Carrega about the highly irregular trials of Chanel Lewis, convicted this week for the murder of jogger Karina Vetrano.
