Podcast: Budget Prepping

Comments (1)

'Tis the season to be budgeting.

This week's Capital Notes Podcast continues our look at the preparations for the first budget of the new governor, and the message being sent to everyone to buckle in for a rough ride.

Kevin Yamamura of the Sacramento Bee joins me to talk about Governor-elect Jerry Brown's second budget forum, and the road ahead.

And for those wondering: friend and fellow podcaster Anthony York and his wife welcomed their new son this past week, so you may not hear him here for a brief time.

[Also please note my apology for audio problems in this podcast, mainly a glitch with my microphone... the audio's been modified to make it more palatable.]

    As always, John’s podcast is a source of otherwise unreported, yet useful information and analysis about Capitol activities. Kevin Yamamura is as competent as new daddy Anthony York in optimizing the value of these podcasts. John also scored a broadcast coup here by installing his microphone at the other end of a 6-foot PVC pipe. My thanks and a Merry Christmas to all of you.
