The day after the election, Civic Cocktail analyzes results of the City Council races from the night before with two people smack in the middle of the political action: Marilyn Strickland, President and CEO of the Seattle Metropolitan Chamber of Commerce whose PAC has supported business candidates, and Heather Weiner, long-time union political consultant who has worked with labor candidates this election season.

In the second segment, dive deep into who we are as a city and how voter and resident demographics shape us. We're joined by The Seattle Times "FYI Guy" Gene Balk and longtime statewide pollster Stuart Elway.

With arena options multiplying, will Mayor Ed Murray bring the Sonics back to Seattle? One year after declaring a homelessness emergency, has the city made progress? And as the city grows, will we get a grip on gridlock? Murray discusses these topics and more with host Joni Balter. Then, journalists Mónica Guzmán and Anika Anand, co-founders of new local media startup The Evergrey, chat about making the most of a changing Seattle and embracing the gray.
