Podcast: Brown and Blue

Comments (3)

It was a color rich day for California politics this week, and both are hues that are instantly familiar. Much to the chagrin, though, of those who prefer red.

This week, a special Capital Notes Podcast -- some insight into the victories of Governor-elect Jerry Brown and his fellow Democrats offered by a daylong event featuring some of the state's sharpest political minds. The event was held Thursday in Sacramento, sponsored by Capitol Weekly and the UC Sacramento Center.

Anthony York and I chat briefly at the beginning of this podcast, and then you'll hear some excerpts from the thoughts of political analyst Tony Quinn, Democratic political consultant Garry South, former GOP legislator Jim Brulte, and gubernatorial chief of staff Susan Kennedy.

We'll likely be back to our humdrum studio environs next week...

    Can you post a link the full audio from the conversation with Brulte, Kennedy, and Block? What they said was really interesting (though depressing).

    It doesn’t appear to be online yet, but the California Channel was there taping it. Look for it on TV, perhaps Monday, or check their website at http://www.calchannel.com.
