The Update: 7-11-16

ABQ Free Press Update, July 11, 2016

ABQ Free Press weekly podcast in collaboration with KANW 89.1 FM

With: Dennis Domrzalski and Samantha Anne Carrillo Topics: crime in Albuquerque was up last year, reaching a 10-year high; Mayor Richard Berry hopes to find out why crime is up by commissioning an outside consultant to conduct a $60,000 review and report; a poll of registered Albuquerque voters found that the Albuquerque Rapid Transit project aka ART shows high awareness (87.5 percent) and low support (28 percent); our latest issue features a longform interview with actor Bryan Cranston, wherein he discusses playing heroes (like undercover agent Robert Mazur in "The Infiltrator") after iconic "Breaking Bad" antihero Walter White; scholar/author Robert Masterson retrospectively reviews "Nickel and Dimed"; N.M. Film Focus reports on the state's film economy and opportunities; M. Brianna Stallings reviews new albums by The Julie Ruin, Bat for Lashes and The Tragically Hip; Samantha Anne Carrillo previews radical ecology documentary "Weedeater" and reports on concerts ranging from country to jazz to hip-hop; and national economic news received a boost, owed in part to U.S. Department of Labor employment statistics.
