Podcast: The Road Ahead

Comments (4)

As the great Yogi Berra once said, "When you come to a fork in the road, take it."

There are some forks in the road ahead for Governor Jerry Brown and his backers of a budget balanced, in part, with a new temporary tax increase.

And a fork in the road right here and now for your weekly aural dish on California politics.

On this week's Capital Notes Podcast, I'm joined by Anthony York of the Los Angeles Times and Marisa Lagos of the San Francisco Chronicle to talk about the road ahead for the tax measure and the governor.

This is, as I'll describe in detail later today here on the blog, the final podcast for the time being. Consider it a pause, perhaps, for a personnel reboot. In any event, we hope it'll tide our loyal listeners (and your emails really make it clear, you're loyal) until the next chapter begins here on the blog.

    Little-known absolutely true fact: Where Yogi Berra lived in Montclair, New Jersey, you could take either fork in the road into his neighborhood and get to his house.

    And that, folks, is why Dan Brekke (the author of this comment) is a rare gem inside the KQED newsroom!
