There was a steady drumbeat of political news this week, led on the California front by Gov. Jerry Brown passing final judgment on some closely watched pieces of legislation.

This week's podcast examines some of those decisions, from Brown's signing of the hotly debated medically assisted suicide bill to his veto on a series of crime-related proposals.

We also examine the emergence of a new player in the brewing 2016 electoral fight over California's tobacco tax: billionaire activist Tom Steyer.
