Podcast: Breaking Our Silence

Comments (4)

Like the legendary Phoenix rising from the ashes, or else the annoying in-law who just won't take a hint, our weekly political chat is back.

Back from our longer-than-expected hiatus, this week's Capital Notes Podcast digs through the rubble of the bills signed into law or vetoed by Governor Jerry Brown.

Anthony York of the Los Angeles Times and I examine a few bills of note, some of the themes of Brown's decisions, and what they might mean for budget and electoral happenings in 2012.

And yes, thanks for your many emails encouraging us to head back into the studio. While this week's podcast is out on a Tuesday, we'll be back to Friday episodes starting next week.

    Welcome back. I follow state politics closely find John Myers’ reporting on Sacramento issues to be consistently one of the most professional and informative performances in California journalism.

    Welcome back! Another great podcast :) BTW, you guys were talking about patterns and the budget and while I too have not slogged through all the bills that have been signed/vetoed (I admit a preference for the vetoes as I love those messages!) it does strike me that an awful lot of bills that would have added State funds to programs that have been/are about to be realigned got the veto blues…

    Welcome back! Nice touch making the hiatus 88 days given the significance of E-88 in your work.
