Scott Shafer landed at KQED in 1998 after extended stints in politics and government to host The California Report. Now he covers those things and more as senior editor for KQED's Politics and Government Desk. He co-hosts the weekly show and podcast Political Breakdown. Recently collaborated on The Political Mind of Jerry Brown, an eight-part series about the life and extraordinary political career of the former governor. When he's not asking questions you'll often find him in a pool playing water polo.
