Podcast: Buzzzzzzz

Comments (2)

Given we often focus in some way on the "buzz" inside California politics, this week's Capital Notes Podcast is an homage to buzz... using (we promise) only this week the lovely hum of the vuvuzela.

You'll have to listen to our chat to appreciate that. But the political buzz this week includes a discussion of the Capitol budget discussion, some big news this week on the subject of state worker pensions, and the race for governor.

Capitol Weekly's Anthony York and I also check in on the big crunch time for the various initiatives that hope to make it to the November ballot.

Note: The podcast will be away next Friday, as I'll be on KQED's mandatory furlough for the week, part of a cost-cutting measure implemented by management last year. One week without pay is better than 52. --JM
