This week’s episode of Clark Talks discusses local warnings about the popular show “13 Reasons Why” and the future of C-Tran’s monthly paratransit passes.

Hosts Katie Gillespie and Dameon Pesanti discuss what local mental health professionals and educators are saying about “13 Reasons Why,” a Netflix series exploring the aftermath of a fictional teenage girl’s death by suicide.

Then, the pair discuss C-Tran’s decision to keep its monthly C-Van passes, which serve disabled riders with door-to-door service.
