Podcast: Prologue, Epilogue

Comments (4)

It's an odd time in the political world, waiting for one saga to begin while putting the final touches on the saga that's just ended.

But that's pretty much where we are on this week's Capital Notes Podcast -- awaiting next week's return of the Legislature and a special session on the (ongoing) budget crisis, while also concluding our long discussion of the 2010 election season.

Anthony York of the Los Angeles Times and I assess the road ahead for the incoming governor, and some of the polling data about how he -- and the entire slate of Democrats -- won their new jobs on November 2.

    Hi John and Anthony, I’m wondering if either of you has any information about Jerry Brown’s pre-budget budget presentation that he’s doing for all the electeds next week. Is it going to be carried on the California Channel or streamed anywhere? It would be very interesting to listen in, and to get some idea of what we might expect in January.

    No word yet, but I’d think the Cal Channel seems a pretty good bet. And obviously, I’ll be reporting for radio and here on the blog.

    The next time that you guys don’t have much to talk about, do you think you could discuss the book “California Crackup”? I just read it and I would love to hear a discussion about it or with the authors.

    I actually interviewed the authors when guest hosting our KQED public affairs show “Forum” this past summer. http://www.kqed.org/a/forum/R201008161000
