Baltimore City public schools filled some key vacancies this week. We look at the hiring left to do, how Frederick Douglass High near Mondawmin Mall is moving forward, and at plans to support teachers after this challenging summer.

Then, a former immigrant-rights organizer in Seattle, the son of Indian parents, Hari Kondabolu is a very hot standup comic. He’s bringing his barbs about race and ethnicity to the Creative Alliance next week, and joins Tom Hall for a preview.

Plus, is Baltimore overrun with stray cats? Nathan speaks to Jennifer Brause of the Baltimore Animal Rescue and Care Shelter about giving homes to adoptable stray cats while preventing the births of thousands of feral ones.
