Podcast: Career Advancement

Comments (2)

Two (or three, actually) legislators angling for two separate high-profile jobs at the same time? Sounds like a podcast theme!

In this week's Capital Notes Podcast, we discuss the battle over who will be the new Speaker of the California Assembly, and this question: will there be any discernible differences in the policies pursued by either Speaker wannabe to Joe Taxpayer?

Capitol Weekly's Anthony York and I also mull over Governor Schwarzenegger's decision to give the job of 'Lite Guv' to state Sen. Abel Maldonado (R-Santa Maria) and whether legislative Democrats will give him the job... or the boot.

    I really enjoy the show, but noticed that it didn’t show up on iTunes this past weekend (12/4). When will it be uploaded?

    We had a big tech snafu last week which prevented that week’s podcast from making it to NPR and iTunes. It appears all is now well, though. Thanks for sticking with us!
