In the two weeks since a balcony in downtown Berkeley collapsed, killing six people, new details have emerged about reported construction flaws and inadequate building oversight. The firm that built the balcony has paid out $26.5 million in construction defect settlements over the past three years, according to an investigation by the San Francisco Chronicle. We'll talk with reporter Jaxon Van Derbeken about his findings and Alameda County's criminal probe into the collapse.

Guests:

Jaxon Van Derbeken, reporter, San Francisco Chronicle

Jerry Hill, California State Senator, representing the 13th district that includes San Bruno
