The Rundown is a collaboration between Downtown Devil and Blaze Radio that recaps Downtown Devil’s weekly coverage of downtown Phoenix.

This week, editors Daniel Perle, Stephanie Morse and Kara Carlson look at the revival of the historic Downtown Deli, discuss the Phoenix Coding Academy and talk about a common but unspoken trend: light rail passengers not paying their fare.

Later they chat about the recently closed play “Mad Messiah” and a new shady bus stop design from four ASU students.
