When journalist Dan Walters got a job in Sacramento forty-two years ago, Jerry Brown had just embarked on his first governorship. Walters would go on to spend 33 years reporting on California politics at the Sacramento Bee. While at the Bee, he traveled up and down the state --- 8,000 miles in total during one early trip -- observing how California was changing. Walters joins us to discuss how the stark clash between reality and politics plays out in things like crumbling infrastructure. He’ll also discuss his recent career move and why he maintains his enthusiasm for California politics.
