The Game - 251 - Changing Attitudes Toward LGBT
The Game - 251 - Changing Attitudes Toward LGBT
In 2000, a state ballot measure banning same-sex marriage passed 61 to 32. In 2013, after a landmark Supreme Court decision, polling showed 64 percent of Californians favored same-sex marriage.

What caused such a dramatic reversal of a once-controversial issue? We talk to our friend, Melissa Michelson, about this sweeping change in public attitudes. The Game is public opinion. The Game is on.

Most of the difficult issues facing this nation – gun control, abortion, race relations, the death penalty – are immovable. But public attitudes and acceptance of same-sex marriage underwent an amazing turnaround. In 2000, voters approved Proposition 22, a ban on same-sex marriage by a margin of 61 percent to 32. In 2008, a similar measure, Proposition 8, also passed but by a much narrower margin of 52 to 48. By 2013, same-sex marriage was legal and public polling showed 64 percent of Californians supported it. What happened?

That’s exactly the question asked by political scientists Brian Harrison and Melissa Michelson. They set off to research why public opinion changed so dramatically and so swiftly.

The results of their work have been published in “Listen, We Need To Talk – How to change attitudes about LGBT rights.” And Melissa, a professor of Political Science at Menlo College, is here to talk about her book. We’ll also spend a Few Minutes with Kevin at the end of the show to catch up on his latest activities.

The Game - 250 - Housing in Brisbane
The Game - 250 - Housing in Brisbane
Throughout the Bay Area, everyone – residents, would-be residents,
employers and leading elected officials – are crying out for a solution to the regional housing shortage. And many of them have decided Brisbane is standing in the way. The Game is housing, the Game is on.

It may be the sole remaining large parcel of Bay Area land available for housing – 600 acres of landfill and an old railyard in Brisbane. For more than a decade, the city has wrestled with what to do with this plot of land – contaminated, but vacant. Now, there is regional pressure to build housing there, and not just a little – enough to triple the population of a city that has long been described as tiny and sleepy.

Last month, the city council voted 5-0 to begin the process of putting on the November ballot an amendment to the city’s general plan that would allow for the building of up to 2,200 housing units, double the number that currently exists in Brisbane, and up to 4 million square feet of commercial development.

Citywide polling from 2015 shows that Brisbane voters feel mixed, at best, about the proposal, but state legislators and regional news outlets have been sharply critical of the Brisbane City Council for not considering a plan that called for 4,000 housing units.

Here to talk about this complicated and pressure-packed issue are Clarke Conway, Mayor of Brisbane, and City Manager Clay Holstine.
