Everything you always wanted to know, or maybe didn't want to know, about the state budget was hashed and rehashed this week -- by two different leading men.
One on the way out, the other on the way in.
This week's Capital Notes Podcast is a departure from our normal chat, and offers extended excerpts from Governor-elect Jerry Brown's Wednesday budget forum, as well as one portion of Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger's Monday budget briefing when the subject turned to why the public doesn't understand more about the choices at hand.
(And yes, before you email in... I know today is the 10th of December.)
Look for our journalist roundtable to return next week.
