"California's over, everything I love about this place is going to hell." So begins Daniel Duane's recent piece in the New York Times. Duane laments California's current state -- everything from its high housing costs, its extreme water shortage, its poorly-ranked schools, and its never-ending rush hour. Duane comments that the changes California has undergone in his lifetime represent the end of the California dream. "All over Northern California, there is a profound mood of loss," he writes. Do you agree? Are we witnessing the end of the California dream? And what does the California dream even look like in 2015?

Guests:

Daniel Duane, contributing editor for Men's Journal; Author of "My Dark California Dream" in the New York Times' Sunday Review.
