Call this our first mobile edition of the Capital Notes Podcast. And it might be the last.
This week, Capitol Weekly editor Anthony York and I chat up the week's small state budget news from inside the statehouse -- more specifically, the hallway outside Governor Schwarzenegger's office, where we waited for "Big 5" negotiations to wrap up.
We also ended up with a guest... because, well, he happened to come up and wonder why we were whispering into a microphone. That guest: Jim Evans, communications director for Senate President pro Tem Darrell Steinberg.
As you'll hear, our casual analysis was abruptly halted when legislators started emerging from their negotiations. No budget white smoke yet, which means the debate goes on.
