The jury is still out as to who will host the 2024 Olympic Games, and while two cities have already dropped out of the running, balking at the financial drain of hosting, Los Angeles remains in the quest. But is it worth it?

We also talk about the Oscars and sports films and, of course, the NFL playoffs. JOIN US!
