Podcast: Fixing What's Broken

November 11, 2011 · Filed Under Podcasts · 2 Comments 

There's an awful lot of discussion these days about what's broken in California's system of government, and no shortage of ideas on how to fix it. But what is in short supply: consensus on how to do so.

This week, a special edition of the Capital Notes Podcast: a conversation between some potent notables in state political circles, recorded for an episode of KQED Public Television's This Week program entitled "Broken California."

You'll hear a lively chat featuring Susan Kennedy, former gubernatorial chief of staff; former state Senate leader Don Perata; political analyst Dan Schnur; and journalist and reform advocate Mark Paul.

(Thanks to my TV colleagues for letting us bring this to you as a podcast; between reporting duties and Veteran's Day child care needs, the usual journalists roundtable wasn't in the cards.)

If you'd like to weigh in with your ideas about how to fix what's broken in California governance and politics, follow the conversation through Twitter, or feel free to comment below.

You can also see what some folks are saying through a compilation of tweets in Storify.
