Lieutenant Governor Gavin Newsom says the story of his childhood and career ascent is often misrepresented. So Scott and Marisa talk with the gubernatorial hopeful about his early years (including his teenage wine cellar), business background, and rise in San Francisco politics. They also look back on his mayoral tenure, and discuss how personal scandal, marriage, and fatherhood have added to his personal growth.
