What it Was Like to Interview Earlonne Woods and Nigel Poor of Ear Hustle

"If you haven't heard my interview with Nigel poor and and Earl Woods from ear. Hustle I highly recommend you. Go back and listen to that episode, which should be right behind this one in your pod catcher after you've listened to that. Come back to this episodes that you can listen to the behind the scenes bonus show so with that I will introduce my special guest and he is Paul Condo welcome to the show Paul. Thank you for having me sky. Thank you for being a guest on your show. You're welcome. So. Hall writes the Podcast Gumbo Newsletter, but polly left for you to just introduce yourself quickly and tell them a little bit about about you before we get started. I have the podcast Gumbo newsletter, which recommends three podcast episodes. A week comes out every Wednesday I've been doing it. Just over about two years now, and then just at the beginning of this year I have a podcast of the same name, and that also is where I give three podcast episode recommendations and A little different than a newsletter at it focuses on national days of the year keeping it pretty consistent, though so that yes, always God. All right, so I guess we'll just get started talking about last week's show and how it came together. Take it away, Pau. All right my hope today is really that your listeners get a little inside baseball about inside podcasting and this particular episode keeping with the sports theme I'm going to give you a softball. Start us all off How do you pick your guests and and why Nigel and airline? That's a great question. It's a couple of different things usually for most episodes. It's a show that I am personally super passionate about if I'm not passionate about the show. That's GONNA. Come through in my interview and the interview just isn't going to be as good, but there have been a couple exceptions where I think that the person behind the show is someone that I'm either fascinated with personally. I would put Jason Cal so I interviewed in season one into that category I do listen to his show, but I really wanted in that interview to get under the hood of who is he because he has well I think a lot of people would say he's sort of a piece of work. And then also you know there might be someone who I think has a long history podcasting. Who I think my listeners can learn from So there's someone this season falls into that category, but for the most part it shows that I'm listening to you. I'm a fan of or that I'm just fascinated like. How did someone make something like this And so if there isn't some combination of those things going on, I think the interview is going to be terrible and I've been a fan of ear hustle since the beginning, they were on my hit list as I was planning season one. So i. mean that's a good question. I mean good point. Is You know how easy or hard is it to get interviews with people like Nigel? And early on you know what is the process you have to go through an agent or representative, or can you go straight to them? That is also a good question. In that case, I was in touch with. I don't know if I'm saying his name. Right David Qatrana I mentioned him at the end of the episode last week I was in touch with him, because he was my contact at Pr X., and he was sort of just keeping me abreast of the news coming out of the Organization for my newsletter, and he would let me know about your stuff, so I got him, and mentioned it before season one, and he was receptive, but they were really busy and I. I hope I have this chronology right, but I think it may have been I think when I first went to him. We didn't know that early on. You know. The public did not know that governor. Governor Jerry. Brown was commuting his sentence. I think that that was going on in the background. I hope I have that right because I remember after I asked him, and he said I'll really try, but they're super busy right now, so it was kind of like a maybe kind of an answer yet, and I remember that we went back and forth a few times, and it just seemed like we were sort of kicking the can down the road, and it wasn't happening and I had to figure out like who am I gonNA, talk to this season and so I finally said you know I think I have to make a decision here like let's try for next season and. I remember then listening to them on fresh air. Terry gross had them on fresh air, and she was the focus of the interview was the commutation of sentence, and how that was you know how that happened? And all of that, but they hadn't come out with season four, which was the first season where he is finally on the outside right from the outside. They had the end of season three. Though where you find out, it's happening and. You get to hear him on the phone with his mom, telling his mom might. I'm coming home and all that, so it was right in that period and I remember thinking interesting. You know that this has happened since. I started talking to David About having them on the show in retrospect. I'm really grateful that it didn't work out that first season because. Everyone wanted to interview them right around that time I mean Terry. Gross was one of many people who talk to them. Because that was like not that was big news that was at least state level, and you know I. Think there might have even been articles in. You know more national papers with national audiences about what had happened, and so I got to have a brand new type of conversation. Now you've been out. You've recorded an entire season like they were about to launch these and five when we had that conversation, so it was sort of like. What has it been like and it was a? A new angle

Californians finally get to play presidential kingmaker

"Super Tuesday is in two days and this year California will be one of the fourteen or so states holding a presidential primary guy Mars Roddy politics reporter for KQED is here to fill us in and guy with two days left before the primary our candidates finally making their way to California they finally are Bernie Sanders is in San Jose today in Los Angeles later in the afternoon Elizabeth Warren coming on Monday Joe Biden on Tuesday I think it's particularly important for Sanders as he really can taste victory in the state the latest KQED polling has them far ahead of the field with thirty seven percent of the vote I think for a second reason he's relying a lot on N. P. P. or independent voters in California to cross over into I think it's important for him to get the message out to independent voters that they can trade in their ballots and vote in the democratic primary and in California has transitioned to early voting do we know how many people are still waiting to turn in their ballots I know I'm one of them me too and it look as of Friday only eighteen percent of mail ballots had been returned that's way below what experts have projected at the beginning of this election I think for no surprise the field is still pretty crowded there's lots of candidates still in their voters want to hold on to their ballots into the last opportunity before they go and that's actually spilling into the endorsement primary we've seen top California Democrats governor Gavin Newsom center comelec Harris former governor Jerry Brown all hold off on endorsing A. Smith who's the consultant for all three was this week's guest on political breakdown here's what he attributed that to I really think it's one of these things where the the bigger door shows are as confused as everyone else politicians they're just like us I think that's no surprise given this crowded field all right thanks guy thanks to finish that with KQED's guy Mars a Roddy and I'm Tiffany canali KQED news

How The Food Industry Manipulates Public Opinion, Science, And Government

How The Food Industry Manipulates Public Opinion, Science, And Government

"Today. I want to talk about how the food industry many plays public opinion manipulate science. Manipulates the government. So here we go. Let's take on Science I. I mean who isn't confused about what to eat. And that's why I wrote my book action. But what's really going on is a concerted effort by the food industry that manipulates science. The government our government spends about one billion a year on nutrition research. The food industry spends twelve billion. And they find all kinds of concocted studies. That actually manipulate the truth. For example. I think Coca Cola. Spent one hundred twenty million dollars to universities and other groups to actually provide money money for research and guess what they funded three hundred eighty nine articles and one hundred sixty nine journals. Things like exercise. Is the key to weight. Loss at soda doesn't have any role in our way. The Snack Food Manufacturers Association groups that confections group funded studies that show the kids. We Candy Actually Lose More Weight and have less inflammation the kids who don't eat candy. I mean how does that even make sense? And when you look at the data I'm you know studies funded by the food. Industry Are Eight to fifty times more likely to show benefit? I studied for example on artificial sweeteners. Show that by the food industry that ninety nine percent they're safe and effective but about ninety plus percent of the studies but their independence show that they cause weight gain obesity. Damage the microbiome and definitely are not a healthy food and not good for dieting. So we have so much going on all the time in research I there was a there was a big review. For example by a group of scientists have looked at sugar recommendations it was published in the animal internal medicine which is one of the most important journals in medicine and yet it it shed very computing. Seems like there's no evidence for assure guidelines to reduce sugar that actually sugar is an harmful that our concerns are overstated in the data to support any limits on sugar in our diet. Well the study was funded by a group called the International Science Institute which sounds awesome but turns out is funded by none other than Coca Cola and Monsanto and Pepsi and all the big characters in the food industry so we're completely bamboozled by misinformation major journals and it confuses doctors nurses nutritionists computers the public and even in confuses policymakers. How do you make sense of all this? So you really have to follow the money so nutrition. Science corruption is huge. And it doesn't just stop there. He go onto fun all sorts of professional associations for example the American Diabetes Association the American Heart Association the Academy of Nutrition Dietetic which which receives forty percent of its funding from the food industry. They create a partnership with kraft singles. Calling it the smart slice of cheese you know which is crazy because it's not even cheese. Something has to be fifty one percent cheese to call it cheese so I'd say cheese like product or I don't even know what to call it. The government doesn't like to call cheese and that's called a heart healthy. Smart Snack is because they were funded by the food industry They are also corrupting their meetings. Their meetings and they provide all sorts of CO education so they have panels with makers of high fructose Corn Syrup and transfats an all kinds of crazy stuff and it just computers nutritionist. Because it seems like it's good science. They're very very good and they spend millions millions and billions on this so they corrupt all these organizations and and so Dr John Nine Ninety s as a professor at Stanford said. We shouldn't believe any recommendations coming out of professional societies that have conflicts of interest. I mean how does the American Heart Association can have fruit loops and twix cereals? Be Hard healthy when they're so full of sugar because they're low fat they get three hundred thousand dollars for putting that seal of approval so we have to be very cautious consumers. See Not just stop. With professional associations they also create front groups. Front groups are group's that actually seem like they're legitimate groups but actually are funded by the food industry or the Agan History of the oil industry. So you've got things like climate smart. Agriculture sounds wonderful. And I who's against that right but it's funded by the fertilizer companies who want to use more fertilizer and as we've talked about before fertilizer drives huge amounts of damage to the ecosystem uses tons of energy to produce damage our waterways at his huge contributor to climate change so Not so smart. In my opinion I see you've got then you've got the ways in which these companies also create corporate social responsibility and it's another mechanism. They used they. They fund groups that are social groups. It's called corporate social responsibility. And what did they find? They find the N. W. C. P. And they find the Hispanic preparation make money. And what does that do that makes them sort of loyal to them and a little bit and the it co ops them for example and there's a soda tax on the ballot. They actually will oppose a soda tax. Because they're funded by coca-cola or or the food industry or so makers is pretty pretty frightening. they also fun things like the hunger groups which which why they're so against limiting soda for snap or food stamps are we spent seven billion soda for the poor every year about thirty billion servings through our food stamp program how that make any sense. When we're trying to create a healthy population says all these insidious ways they caught these groups. I remember when I was showing fed up in Atlanta. I met with Bernice King. Martin Luther King's daughter and she wanted to the movie and the King Center instead of being nonviolent is also nonviolent yourself through how you take care of your health and she was all excited about it and I got a call later. We couldn't show the film there and I was like why and that was moving about obesity in the food industry said well because Coca Cola Funds King Center. It's pretty frightening And how they co op these groups And we also do all kinds of other nefarious things They besides the front groups besides sole told responsibility besides getting into our public health academies besides corrupting science. They're involved in terrible political efforts that are behind the scenes that manipulate public opinion for example. Now there's a couple of things that happened. One was an effort by the Grocery Manufacturers America which essentially was a representative now-disbanded thankfully that was representing the big food companies and they illegally got them to contribute to a slush fund to fight. Gmo labeling. Which would have cost those companies billions of dollars and fight it in Washington state and they pretended to sort of hide behind this this group. That wasn't actually disclosing the funding Attorney General Washington state figure this out and sued the grocery manufacturers of America for campaign finance violations and led to the biggest settlement. I think it was like fourteen or eighteen million dollars against them Yet the ballot passed to fight. Gmo labeling and they won they spent so much money but they got slapped a few million bucks. I mean they make millions of dollars. They don't really care. But after that a number of these companies actually you're standing up and doing good things and I think I see I see progress. I see change and that makes me happy for example Nestle's known Unilever and Mars Got Out of Jimmy at that point the grocery manufacturer America and they formed a sustainable food policy alliance which was a great idea. And I think it's exciting and we'll see what happens with that. Nomination hopefully work with him on my food fix campaign so so that was terrible and then of course even worse things eighty for example they create a ballot initiative in California which was to prohibit local governments from raisings local taxes unless there was a two thirds majority which would have crippled the governments in the local towns so they couldn't schools are departments police stations etc and They didn't care about that but they cared about was manipulating. The Governor Governor Jerry Brown is probably liberal governor. We had in America to put a preemptive policy that prevented any future taxes on soda. Junk food. Now think about that. I mean they literally strong armed the government by threatening them with a measure that would they spent seven million dollars promoting that would have crippled local governments and basically bribed to force the governor to create this preemptive law which is terrible so all of a sudden affairs ways that the food industries acting and we need to fight

"Every buddy hug is well it from Beautiful Salt Lake City Utah. It's thank God. I made the the podcast frank film and I'm Dan Beecher and coming up today. Dan Do then. No but kind of Real Dum Dum Zday the doomsday clock. That's that's what we're GONNA get to talk about And it. Just you know if we're talking about it. It must have moved it. must it must have tipped one indirection or the other. Yeah and it has only ever tipped in one direction. No it's not true back in the end of the Cold Award Dan back it moved back like twenty seconds. Wow it was like back to like the the past the eight on the face of those twenty minutes seconds tick. It's not a second hand. It's a minute hand. It's a minute hand. Yeah they moved seconds this time. But it's a minute hand. Don't worry about it. We'll get to at the end of the show. Are you sure not the only people who have been confused by this. I don't think Jerry Brown governor former California governor. Jerry Brown was very competed. They moved it minutes. Yeah they used to move at minutes. They just can't move any closer. The problem is they've got no more minutes to move it. That's the problem they have to move. Its second month. Well that's just stupid. Of course it's you even tell that it's the whole concept stupid. Oh my God. Why are we going to talk about stick around guys? You'll find out. We got things to say all right. Well Dan I'm sure you're going to be very very excited to hear I already am That the LDS Church church the church. Jesus Christ of Latter Day saints as they want to be known right as They have issued a statement about the fact that they are going to be changing their temple. We'll clothing their ceremonial clothing. Oh Yeah I if if you're a mormon it's important for the rest of us it's it's just it's one of those big. What the fuck well here okay? So here's what people need to know talking about the magic underwear. No which is which which is what they call the temple garment so one could be forgiven for being confused. And that's the stuff that Mormons walk around and every day. It's under their clothes. Yeah if they've been through the temple they're wearing these tremendously stupid underwear. It's also not the clothing building that you change into when you first go into the temple when you walk into the temple and you show your your card and your yes right you gotTa have your membership card. Yeah it's gotta be up to date and you go in go into a locker room and you have costco basically and you have. You can either their rent your sermon clothing right or actually can rent all of it. You can rent you can also rent your your temple clothing And but you get that you go you. May maybe you you brought your own in so you have a little suitcase backpack. That's got got it all in there. And he in change into all white like white pants and White Little Little Booty Shoe thing gentlemen have a suit usually. It's a it's a well. No no no if you're well to do or like high up in the Church leadership then you'd have a white soon otherwise I'll it has to be as white pants in a white shirt. You don't have to have like a suit coat. I'm not saying you have to thank you. It's a whole Colonel Sanders. Look it's true but it's literally white on white on white it's everything your socks Shoes White nightime bought white. o- could one go with the White House. Scott Scott I don't Know Oh cheerio gentlemen anyway. So there's that and then that's what you just sort of walk around the temple right right. Everybody's in all white ladies in white draft but in the ceremony in the endowment ceremony. Right right there. You have this little pouch of the ceremonial clothes and you put them on at certain points. You're instructed put this on put bad on. There's like a little apron thing to call. I think they call them apron. It's Kinda like a Toga over your clothes right Over your shirt and tie the rope. I'm sorry that's what they call that apron actually is like this little green. The only splash of color right green and have that. There's a hat for the men little veil for the ladies right anyway. It's all very fiddly right right. There's there's like there's a point the ceremony where there's a string that's hanging off of your and it looks like a Baker's hat maybe And there's like a little loop on your shoulder and you're supposed to tie that little string onto your shoulder as just such. Oh my God. It's just such it's A. It's all just a mess. It's the weirdest looking thing you can google. It and their image. Yeah and it's it's not very becoming. I will not unless they have decided to change To simplify and make more comfortable. Oh the clothing. How bad it's GONNA be easier to put on care for and apparently to afford making it cheaper for the masses? Okay good you. Don't I have to be a a well-to-do Mormon no anymore to to to not have some shabby old Temple clothing Let's let's see they are so the they're getting rid of the dangling. String from the hat the hat had. How will the hat be tethered to one's body? Not sure how that's GONNA work. Also the men's hat. I mentioned that kind of looks like a Baker's hat or something it looks is like a goofy chef's hat from some yeah strange cartoons like this plastic disk in it. Oh really that sort of gives it its shape shape and four all right That's going away. Oh I'm not sure I think it's more of a beret. Oh a little jonty beret. Hey John and Let's see more durable fabric. I think I mentioned that And says sash will be easier to care for the apron will not change okay right highly symbolic the pro very important. Everything is simple cannot mess with the Apron Brin and this this came out and as always with all these because the LDS church. They've been working rickman the temple ceremony for time. Yeah it's not something. That's that static. The brethren make every so often make little changes and and because it's like behind closed doors and it's all a big secret and memories last only so long the People I think just kind of end up forgetting what it used to be yeah right And one would surprise out. It's not important it's because again. It's all symbolism. Yeah right but Yeah the never ending you know never changing changing and Omni whatever God. Yeah exactly as has yesterday's again David and other administrative change and the clothing this guy this the current president has been shaking things up ever since he took over. Oh I mean I thought nothing could happen happened. The Dude was like ninety three when he took over. I thought you know from now on you. Know little changes in nothing important because they're all just waiting to die. This guy changed. Change the flavor of the Mints Right and Bowl you know. Are there minutes now. I wish they were just kind of made that up. I kind of channeled Reagan and Jelly Beans. Yeah exactly there should be snacks. Well there's a cafeteria oh did you know that no I didn't you didn't know that there's a cafeteria the larger ones the new mini express temple. Right they just You can get some coffee to go. They don't have like food services and they they don't have laundries in the small ones but the big ones have laundries and and cafeterias and so. Yeah like between sessions.

"Would still be in perfect forty trying to get permission to visit the building the way that that is not there it with him when he wants something done its hands on he makes the call as mayor Jerry Brown learned that to be effective you have to be hands on literally so I like being there because I could walk over the planet he rode along with cops walked the halls of public schools and knocked on doors to talk about housing I don't think there are many elected officials who takes a strike action direct action was how brown approach the problems he faced as mayor of Oakland viewing the city's problems up close didn't remove brown's blind spots but it gave them an education and how decisions made up of the capital were felt on the streets it's a more physical direct immediacy that you don't get in Sacramento where its capital on this episode of the political minded Jerry Brown direct action Jerry Brown stock on the streets of Oakland money the it's wouldn't happen but what right right you're listening to the political mind of Jerry Brown I'm Scott Shafer it's Monday July eighth we're here at mountain house with governor Jerry Brown Scott share something you learn about Jerry Brown when you interview him for dozens and dozens of ours is more of a detached analyst than in a motive storyteller what you're more feelings I feel bad they feel good you know neither one except when he talks about Oakland I like being in Oakland he didn't have to jump on them playing you do see the neighborhood you it was very grounded and is very real when brown told us about his eight years as mayor of Oakland he was full of stories of his encounters with cops criminals activists kids all face to face and those encounters guided his approach to governance the city experience is more immediate than the more general experience of governing the state forty million people from the Oregon border to the Mexican border brown city experience in Oakland began in nineteen ninety five he was out of office then and decided to move there from San Francisco I was in the service is going to want to go to a local in part because it would be less expensive in part because of the politics were more working class and that would fit better with how I want to be perceived and noticed as we heard in the last episode transmit is days on the air railing against the political establishment in his we the.

"NEWSOM as a client. Kamala Harris Chris Libby chef at Lea- so I think he saw that whole operation. You know in the holiday parties with all the you know all the different candidates. They're like what are they really believe in you know they they just taking my money or do they believe in me. I think even when I if I remember right when we recorded the interview. Dan Newman was in the room and he is health brown over the years. I think he likes just you know poking jabs at people in pointing out the fact that look whatever you guys know. I've knew that twenty ten years before like he's been in the game much longer than a lot of the consultants that run running game in California today and I think he you know he likes to keep his circle tight and really own political adviser he even mentioned while he was attorney. General he said you know subsequent attorney the general they hire a lot of political consultants to help them handle the policy and politics out of the job. I didn't need that. I I have my own mind in that regard right and so I think he really relied on an Dan who brought the organization and the staffing and then he thought everything else. I can handle unless I forget. Jerry Brown is famously. CHEAP FRUGAL FRUGAL. Fifty a million boxes and other people's plates when he goes at the dinner with that is In fact in fact at one of those Christmas parties I I was talking with the governor and he was showing me photos as he was the the ranch Qaluza. And I think you're going to be back in six months. You'RE NOT GONNA hate it. They're gonNA hate eight at their own and so you spend a lot of time up there. Give us paint us a little bit of Kim Restaurants. That's it yeah others so what does the. What's the scene like there? Well it's beautiful. It is beautiful but it's very remote. I mean so you know the town nearest town Williams which is right off the I five and so so. That's where we stayed at the lovely Zillah Motel And then it's another fifteen twenty minutes to his home and so you go through twenty and then there's another like fifteen minutes of winding road road and you've got a little creek on one side and the hills and mountains and animals on the hills grazing and then as he says. You know if you put in my address in Yahoo maps. You'RE GONNA go right by my house and keep keep going Lake County. It's just so remote that it's not easy to find. Yeah he's got a Po box. I don't think he actually has an address But you know it's very it's a steer but it's beautiful you know it's all would Would that we sat every time. We went up there at this long communal table. That was solid wood He was growing tomatoes in the backyard. Kyar D- He has a composter that he put stuff in He you know they're all they're doing of course the recycling all that stuff but you know there's no one really around. I mean one day in the middle of a neighbor knocked on the door clearly knows everybody around there. He likes to talk with them about the history of the land. And you know. He's very focused on his own family. History told there's one point that he wished his great grandfather had kept a diary of what life was like. But you know he would talk about. Oh Yeah Oh the stagecoach. Choose to stop over there and there was a hotel over there. I ought to be clear. He's not isolated from the political world. He's still I mean there would be times he would kind of cut off the interviews and say hey I have a call with zone Perry Phil Perry or you go back on the board of the Oakland Military Institute. I've a call on that and I want I. Have you know meeting with the President of Arizona State or someone coming up for this. UC Climate Initiative. So he still still has a lot of things that this is kind of like mission control where he's having his calls out to the world from Lusa actually joked with him about. Maybe you could run for supervisor of Glue County or Mayor Be Mayor Williams and one thing he told us which I don't remember we actually put it in the In the in the podcast but He thought about running for State School Superintendent after he left. The governor's office. He's clearly not done. He's still thinking about what he could. Do you know how he can make a difference. So you've you've known him for many years now twenty and fifteen eighteen twenty years. You've certainly back to before he was mayor. Yeah what did you learn about him that you didn't already know well. There are some real like specific things like he had. I thought about running for mayor of Los Angeles. That was that was nice. I thought about running for mayor of San Francisco and the way he settled on Oakland. You know it wasn't quite as organic as some people thought. It was the fact that he considered an endorsing proposition. Thirteen the property tax measure which he later did that. One Eighty and people thought he did endorse I said he was so masterful in embracing it implementing it the Howard Jarvis actually cut an ad for his career election campaign So there was that and I you know I think there are also moments of real I hesitate to use this works. I don't WANNA make. It seem like it was more than it was but he his relationship with an you know is is he clue. Do they really love each other. And you moments where I saw there was one day where in this wasn't recorded or anything. But she was driving into town and they only have one car and so she said well. I'm going into town Jerry. I'll see you later. And he just looked up battering said I'm GonNa miss you and it was so sweet you know and so there was that side of him that I don't think a lot of people get to pretty much And then just incredible. You know encyclopedic knowledge of politics and how he thinks about every decision every issue in great great detail great depth So this is going to be. This is going to be airing on the radio on K. K. D. as well Wednesday nights at throughout the month of January at Eight o'clock but you can Listen to the entire you can. Binge listened to the PODCAST. Yes well and you have a live event on go ahead. Yes we're going to be with the governor redoing onstage interview with him at the herbst theatre in San Francisco Monday night January thirteenth starts. I think at seven o'clock and if you want tickets you can go to dot org slash events. And so what. What did he think of it does he? Have you get any feedback on these series from the governor. He hasn't heard it yet well. He hasn't hurt damage. Control Control. No No aditorial editorial control. Actually that was. It was an interesting so we started this project as an oral history with the Bancroft Library and usually the subject of oral histories are able to edit and he will be able to edit his oral history the truth bankrupt but then we had this other group where we take all the tape from interviews and do what we want with it. So that's how we came with the series and if you WanNa find out what he thought of it Monday night when we met with him but at the beginning before in the governor's mansion before he left office. You know we told him we're GONNA WE'RE GONNA talk with you for thirty forty hours number talk with other people to get their perspectives on your life in. And he just said why do you do that. They don't have the right perspective. I do so. We'll see what he thinks. That is as I said. My some of my favorite fair parts of this are the is when he argues with you about the questions that you're asking. We left that we could cut that out. That was so fun it is Oh Jerry Brown. Oh it is very Jerry Brown guys. Thanks thanks for being on. It's all political congrats on the on the series and it's a fine. I commend it to all even though this was the first ever.

"That. There's so many things happening and and it's hard to really dedicate yourself especially when you don't have an real organization setup. Gray Davis told us. He didn't even have a scheduler when he was governor. Shall we and another parallel. I would say you know. I think I think Jerry Brown some critical of of the current governor. Because he's always out and about he's tweeting. He's appearing in places uses. That was very much jerry. Brown nineteen seventy five. He was very much spontaneous. He was running for president. And we all know Gavin newsom wants to be president at some point and it's just like chomping at the bid would love to be out there all excited about going to Iowa to campaign for college so you know it's interesting yes. I think there are a lot of parallels between Jerry Brown one point zero. Oh and this current first year or so of governors and the one of the more. The funnier bits is when you talk about his first run for president where he decided literally really at what. Five o'clock on a Friday afternoon Gray Davis the former governor who was then his chief of staff really didn't know about it either. Just kind of said well. I guess I'm running. I mean I mean that's insane and it was march. It was march of the year of the election. There was four and by the time he started campaigning. Four months of primaries already over. I mean that's just like unthinkable in today's political climate. When you have these runs that are meticulously planned years in advance? He I think he kind of looked around and felt. Like I've done what I wanted to do here in Sacramento. So let's just try it. Let's do it and it was almost from the beginning. mathematically there is no chance he was going to be Jimmy Carter just based on the delegates but he felt like yeah. Why not? Let's do it in for a while while he really had a really good run. He didn't have a plan of course to win the nomination Nancy Pelosi helped him win Maryland which we talk about in appearance but he didn't really have a long term plan for anything he would literally. We heard from people that work with him he would come in in the morning. Look at the papers and then decide. Oh here's an issue that's playing out. Let's jump on that you know. It was very spontaneous. Genius is funny because Kathleen Brown at sister told us you know. If he had married and Gus Brown his wife earlier he would have been present. Yes Joe trippy told me that. Also years ago when I did a a profile on on an and she makes appearance I've not heard these episodes but she you sit down and I heard bits of her but she sit down talk with her yes she was up there every day. We were up up there She wasn't there she would be off. You know in the gardener doing something whatever she was up to but we did sit down with her the last day we were there and she really brought about a sea change both for for him personally of course but it's up professionally. As well she brought order focus timeliness and the discipline to an operation. That was not known for that right. And and and and and I imagine in the later episode. You'll get into how much he matured between a one point. Zero and two point Oh Inbetween one point zero and two you point out. Jerry Brown was the governor of my city of Oakland and I just as I was moving there and he made a couple of key decisions which you cover are here about Moving people downtown and and but you also call him out for You know he's definitely changed the face of Oakland but ah the downside is. He changed the face of Oakland. It is Many people say that led to the exodus of African Americans An Oakland But he seems that those are the warmest feelings he has in. The series is about Oakland. Why why is that well a couple of things one I think he felt like he could make a difference immediately? He could walk out of his office and walk over to the Planning Department as he did on behalf of Willie Brown and he tells that story and have a real impact he could go out to a restaurant and talked. Talk to constituents you know when you're up in Sacramento with whether you're a legislator or the governor you're pretty removed people don't have access to you but he had very little security detail he would go out and about in Oakland and people could get angry if they wanted and they did they come up to him yell at him and he would listen and he could he could say let's build housing then he could see the construction crates. You know it was a very direct correct you do this. And it gets done and the flip side of that and as you'll hear in the Oakland episode some really biting criticism from current mayor who was on Jerry Brown staff when he was mayor that you know getting closer to a lot of these issues riding along with cops it may have gotten him too close to the point where he fell in the case of public safety so aligned with the Oakland Police Department that went scandal like the riders hit in two thousand. He was only you know he took their side. And it's still to this day. I think pretty defensive about his relationship nations with the Oakland Police Department and the issues that they dealt with When he was mayor and in the San Juan I think very deep down? He also appreciates what police do you know. And first responders generally does does see I hate those are tough streets and he uses some pretty colorful language to describe the kinds of things that they see and phase out on the streets as you know. PD members I was. I was surprised to hear the libby criticism of especially because Jerry He basically pushed over the line in her. First run with the late with very very late. Endorsement But so I was. I was surprised to hear her. call him out like that. So yeah and I would say I think there's so much speculation at the time and in the sense that. Oh you know his alignment with Oakland. Police Department is is really just leading up to his running. For Attorney General. This is a political move but I think in the interview the Oakland interviews. He didn't give the sense that this was just a political catalyst. I think he really believed in the mission of the Oakland Police Department and you know took their side when it came to these debates about use of force on. He was very passionate about any criticism at the time. And you alluded to the job that you know. He was focused on building market rate housing affordable housing. And he wanted the reason was he wanted to revitalize downtown and as he told us if you bring quote unquote poor people downtown. They don't have money to spend on other things. They're not gonNA go shopping and I could go to restaurants. I mean those are things that I think were very you know. Certainly his honest belief but I think for some people are going to hear that. What what I heard that I was like? Wow No politician say that that would be says it in a very indelicate look at ways we say more conversation about the political mind Jerry Brown after this short break and and now here's more of my conversation about the political mind of Jerry Brown he also you're talking about is sort of transformation from again. He's it's just making nakedly political He was a reformer. You know when he when he ran for the school district there the College College Board in Los Angeles and then the secretary of state and then you know later life is like well transparency. That's kind of overrated. Let's play a little clip of the Trans Jerry talking about how transparency man. Whatever of course will make it transparent? Everybody sees the money flowing and makes feel worse so the press loves transparency currency. Because you get out of it and you get a sell papers. We've all heard politicians demand more transparency around money and politics arguing that it will restore store public confidence. It has the exact opposite effect. Because reels. All the foibles and flaws in works of the system and it just undermines is conference all the more. So that's a product. What the hell's up with that? I mean I can't believe he. I think he was saying that because he I mean he wrote the political reform political political reform act and then later in life of course We hasten to add that the governor's never really released as I was going to say exactly. So what's good for the goose. Maybe not so much for the Gander. Yeah I think what he was saying. There was only inspires cynicism about politics. People see all the money. And you know who's how the lobbyists research funding all the politicians and you know basically a quid pro quo for things. Even though you can't do that legally I think that's what you're saying. But he's also as governor. Yeah he was did not embrace additional additional reforms particularly like for example for example. Maybe this is not a good example. But he vetoed the bill to force trump to release his own tax. Yes yes which in turn you know. In the end. He turned out to be right. It was not constitutional but you know he was not a big advocate and later in Jerry Brown two point Oh for transparency. But this thing you'll get throughout the series I think there's he's a rare politician Titian who will step back and question things that he had assumed early in his career in something like transparency and political reform falls into this. I think so many politicians if they've put put their name on something it's like you're riding or dying with it and I think he's had the experience and just the mind the intellect to step back and say you know I really held this belief strongly. is that true or is is disclosure. Good is transparency. Good now you could say there's a Lotta cynicism involved. He was making these reform runs while he was trying to get higher office. Whether but it was the governor's office where the president also was willing to take money from say the oil companies or business right to get prop thirty pass the tax increase that really saved the school from really massive deep cuts. And you know his he would say look. Yeah well I'll take their money if they want to help me pass a tax to keep the schools funded. Sure I'll do that. It doesn't mean they're going to influence my thinking about safe fracking. Although there were still did yes the Also WanNa play clip about how he's how his feelings are about. Political campaigns campaigns have changed. Let's hear an exit from the show. Brown used his ability to think for himself in that two thousand six run for attorney. General Brown refused to hire a team of political consultants. He doesn't go along with conventional wisdom. He's built up a body of experience that has guided him in terms of what he thinks is important. And I'm not Steve Glaeser. He's a state senator. Now was one of the few advisors who brown did lean on for help over the years he has over time Kinda disdains stains the tapestry and the conventional view of political engagement and has kind of carved his own path Brown says that when he entered politics the people had a personal connection to the campaigns. They worked on the campaigns with more. Or like a 'cause we're all working. We believed in the political business of of paid people who that is their life profession. I think that was much less in the sixties and seventies in the last few decades candidates have relied more more and more on a class of political consultants to help them manage and message their campaigns. Now Mercer you run a campaign the UN Sivy else camping you resist that. I do still feel a little uncomfortable. That Brown says he liked to take more control of his campaigns than most candidates there are horses and their jockeys and horse although I like to be a jockey at the same time so what. What do you think's behind that? Because he does have Jerry does have the the fact that California's top political consultants working for him But it is as tight group. I mean that. The group Ran Governor's campaign in twenty. Ten was Glazer Zor and his wife and a couple other folks but that it was a small group and they had an office in Oakland and the a lot of volunteers but yeah but his big campaign operation at the top was a smith. You know his that firm as a CNN as it was called at the time they also had Gavin..

And he wanted the reason was he wanted to revitalize downtown and as he told us if you bring quote unquote poor people downtown. They don't have money to spend on other things. They're not gonNA go shopping and I could go to restaurants. I mean those are things that I think were very you know. Certainly his honest belief but I think for some people are going to hear that. What what I heard that I was like? Wow No politician say that that would be says it in a very indelicate look at ways we say more conversation about the political mind Jerry Brown after this short break and and now here's more of my conversation about the political mind of Jerry Brown he also you're talking about is sort of transformation from again. He's it's just making nakedly political He was a reformer. You know when he when he ran for the school district there the College College Board in Los Angeles and then the secretary of state and then you know later life is like well transparency. That's kind of overrated. Let's play a little clip of the Trans Jerry talking about how transparency man. Whatever of course will make it transparent? Everybody sees the money flowing and makes feel worse so the press loves transparency currency. Because you get out of it and you get a sell papers. We've all heard politicians demand more transparency around money and politics arguing that it will restore store public confidence. It has the exact opposite effect. Because reels. All the foibles and flaws in works of the system and it just undermines is conference all the more. So that's a product. What the hell's up with that? I mean I can't believe he. I think he was saying that because he I mean he wrote the political reform political political reform act and then later in life of course We hasten to add that the governor's never really released as I was going to say exactly. So what's good for the goose. Maybe not so much for the Gander. Yeah I think what he was saying. There was only inspires cynicism about politics. People see all the money. And you know who's how the lobbyists research funding all the politicians and you know basically a quid pro quo for things. Even though you can't do that legally I think that's what you're saying. But he's also as governor. Yeah he was did not embrace additional additional reforms particularly like for example for example. Maybe this is not a good example. But he vetoed the bill to force trump to release his own tax. Yes yes which in turn you know. In the end. He turned out to be right. It was not constitutional but you know he was not a big advocate and later in Jerry Brown two point Oh for transparency. But this thing you'll get throughout the series I think there's he's a rare politician Titian who will step back and question things that he had assumed early in his career in something like transparency and political reform falls into this. I think so many politicians if they've put put their name on something it's like you're riding or dying with it and I think he's had the experience and just the mind the intellect to step back and say you know I really held this belief strongly. is that true or is is disclosure. Good is transparency. Good now you could say there's a Lotta cynicism involved. He was making these reform runs while he was trying to get higher office. Whether but it was the governor's office where the president also was willing to take money from say the oil companies or business right to get prop thirty pass the tax increase that really saved the school from really massive deep cuts. And you know his he would say look. Yeah well I'll take their money if they want to help me pass a tax to keep the schools funded. Sure I'll do that. It doesn't mean they're going to influence my thinking about safe fracking. Although there were still did yes the Also WanNa play clip about how he's how his feelings are about. Political campaigns campaigns have changed. Let's hear an exit from the show. Brown used his ability to think for himself in that two thousand six run for attorney. General Brown refused to hire a team of political consultants. He doesn't go along with conventional wisdom. He's built up a body of experience that has guided him in terms of what he thinks is important. And I'm not Steve Glaeser. He's a state senator. Now was one of the few advisors who brown did lean on for help over the years he has over time Kinda disdains stains the tapestry and the conventional view of political engagement and has kind of carved his own path Brown says that when he entered politics the people had a personal connection to the campaigns. They worked on the campaigns with more. Or like a 'cause we're all working. We believed in the political business of of paid people who that is their life profession. I think that was much less in the sixties and seventies in the last few decades candidates have relied more more and more on a class of political consultants to help them manage and message their campaigns. Now Mercer you run a campaign the UN Sivy else camping you resist that. I do still feel a little uncomfortable. That Brown says he liked to take more control of his campaigns than most candidates there are horses and their jockeys and horse although I like to be a jockey at the same time so what. What do you think's behind that? Because he does have Jerry does have the the fact that California's top political consultants working for him But it is as tight group. I mean that. The group Ran Governor's campaign in twenty. Ten was Glazer Zor and his wife and a couple other folks but that it was a small group and they had an office in Oakland and the a lot of volunteers but yeah but his big campaign operation at the top was a smith.

"That. There's so many things happening and and it's hard to really dedicate yourself especially when you don't have an real organization setup. Gray Davis told us. He didn't even have a scheduler when he was governor. Shall we and another parallel. I would say you know. I think I think Jerry Brown some critical of of the current governor. Because he's always out and about he's tweeting. He's appearing in places uses. That was very much jerry. Brown nineteen seventy five. He was very much spontaneous. He was running for president. And we all know Gavin newsom wants to be president at some point and it's just like chomping at the bid would love to be out there all excited about going to Iowa to campaign for college so you know it's interesting yes. I think there are a lot of parallels between Jerry Brown one point zero. Oh and this current first year or so of governors and the one of the more. The funnier bits is when you talk about his first run for president where he decided literally really at what. Five o'clock on a Friday afternoon Gray Davis the former governor who was then his chief of staff really didn't know about it either. Just kind of said well. I guess I'm running. I mean I mean that's insane and it was march. It was march of the year of the election. There was four and by the time he started campaigning. Four months of primaries already over. I mean that's just like unthinkable in today's political climate. When you have these runs that are meticulously planned years in advance? He I think he kind of looked around and felt. Like I've done what I wanted to do here in Sacramento. So let's just try it. Let's do it and it was almost from the beginning. mathematically there is no chance he was going to be Jimmy Carter just based on the delegates but he felt like yeah. Why not? Let's do it in for a while while he really had a really good run. He didn't have a plan of course to win the nomination Nancy Pelosi helped him win Maryland which we talk about in appearance but he didn't really have a long term plan for anything he would literally. We heard from people that work with him he would come in in the morning. Look at the papers and then decide. Oh here's an issue that's playing out. Let's jump on that you know. It was very spontaneous. Genius is funny because Kathleen Brown at sister told us you know. If he had married and Gus Brown his wife earlier he would have been present. Yes Joe trippy told me that. Also years ago when I did a a profile on on an and she makes appearance I've not heard these episodes but she you sit down and I heard bits of her but she sit down talk with her yes she was up there every day. We were up up there She wasn't there she would be off. You know in the gardener doing something whatever she was up to but we did sit down with her the last day we were there and she really brought about a sea change both for for him personally of course but it's up professionally. As well she brought order focus timeliness and the discipline to an operation. That was not known for that right. And and and and and I imagine in the later episode. You'll get into how much he matured between a one point. Zero and two point Oh Inbetween one point zero and two you point out. Jerry Brown was the governor of my city of Oakland and I just as I was moving there and he made a couple of key decisions which you cover are here about Moving people downtown and and but you also call him out for You know he's definitely changed the face of Oakland but ah the downside is. He changed the face of Oakland. It is Many people say that led to the exodus of African Americans An Oakland But he seems that those are the warmest feelings he has in. The series is about Oakland. Why why is that well a couple of things one I think he felt like he could make a difference immediately? He could walk out of his office and walk over to the Planning Department as he did on behalf of Willie Brown and he tells that story and have a real impact he could go out to a restaurant and talked. Talk to constituents you know when you're up in Sacramento with whether you're a legislator or the governor you're pretty removed people don't have access to you but he had very little security detail he would go out and about in Oakland and people could get angry if they wanted and they did they come up to him yell at him and he would listen and he could he could say let's build housing then he could see the construction crates. You know it was a very direct correct you do this. And it gets done and the flip side of that and as you'll hear in the Oakland episode some really biting criticism from current mayor who was on Jerry Brown staff when he was mayor that you know getting closer to a lot of these issues riding along with cops it may have gotten him too close to the point where he fell in the case of public safety so aligned with the Oakland Police Department that went scandal like the riders hit in two thousand. He was only you know he took their side. And it's still to this day. I think pretty defensive about his relationship nations with the Oakland Police Department and the issues that they dealt with When he was mayor and in the San Juan I think very deep down? He also appreciates what police do you know. And first responders generally does does see I hate those are tough streets and he uses some pretty colorful language to describe the kinds of things that they see and phase out on the streets as you know. PD members I was. I was surprised to hear the libby criticism of especially because Jerry He basically pushed over the line in her. First run with the late with very very late. Endorsement But so I was. I was surprised to hear her. call him out like that. So yeah and I would say I think there's so much speculation at the time and in the sense that. Oh you know his alignment with Oakland. Police Department is is really just leading up to his running. For Attorney General. This is a political move but I think in the interview the Oakland interviews. He didn't give the sense that this was just a political catalyst. I think he really believed in the mission of the Oakland Police Department and you know took their side when it came to these debates about use of force on. He was very passionate about any criticism at the time. And you alluded to the job that you know. He was focused on building market rate housing affordable housing. And he wanted the reason was he wanted to revitalize downtown and as he told us if you bring quote unquote poor people downtown. They don't have money to spend on other things.

"But before there was Jerry Brown the seasoned politician there was Edmund G. brown junior just a little kid growing up in Forest Hill a quiet upscale leafy part of San Francisco this morning to thirty eight so my first few years that we had World War two we had rationing and there were no cars for sale so you have the same car there was no houses being built and there was a certain simplicity we begin our conversations with Jerry Brown on a topic he didn't seem too interested in discussing his childhood which began eighty one years ago it was a time when kids were seen but rarely heard the relationship that I see between sons and fathers today he's so different so profoundly different my father did his running for office being dissed returnee his father Pat brown was a rising star in local democratic politics becoming San Francisco's district attorney in nineteen forty three when Jerry was just five years old I was when I was growing up till I was in the eighth grade the man for twenty general but he did his adult thing and I played with my friends in our neighborhood Forrest hill brown says I'm like today there was an impenetrable line between the two worlds of adults and kids you've heard these politicians yeah I have to talk through with my family I have no experience in that what about political talk at the dinner table nope I don't remember talking to me about it talk to my sisters you know should I run girls was a political science course in nineteen fifty Pat brown vaulted from being San Francisco district attorney to becoming Attorney General of California the greatest satisfaction that I think I've had a ball has been working on behalf of all the people of this state but back then young Jerry didn't share his dad's political ambitions well I don't think I was really engaged in politics and yet he was surrounded by it he met Adlai Stevenson a Democrat who is running for president against white Eisenhower I like touring speaker I watched his convention speech in nineteen fifty two with ours very excited it.

Three Wins in 4 Years Is a Record

"James Good Morning. Good Morning Steve. Thanks for having me on hope your weekend. Well it did. It did and I thought I saved I wrote I write down as many selections. It's always tough for Breeders Cup because then the paper gets all gets a little a little sloppy and sure enough here. I'm looking now and yeah I do have it. Actually there we go there we go home. You were a Vino guy and and bricks and mortar and and then spun to run so yeah your share of winners Too Key around I thought was on higher power. Though I didn't have you know I got you written down for Dino. I took higher power stirred Flavian Pratt. What's up on them? I'll tell you play the Heidi wrote one favorite Donna Duluth below she. The brewers Juke juvenile given up Phillies runner-up but he had a win. had four seconds and fourth earners. I thought that was a really a great performance by him and You know he has the Kentucky Derby win on his resume junkies like have that really just A good showcase for an upcoming star in our rank agreed and and I tweeted on Sunday. I've discussed this a couple of times this week. His record is stunning. And he's got people would say. Oh He's only got three wins. WHOA WHOA three wins? Thirty eight mounts and this is only his fourth year as fourth year riding his sixteen seventeen eighteen nineteen at-bats. Ah But another fourteen in the money finishes and then a handful of fourths and fifths I mean the percentage is frightening. I mean considering considering the level of competition really outstanding and he gives he gives every virtually every horse. If he's got horse to work with he gives them a chance. It's definitely and you know I mean I think Santa Anita and hosted the Breeders Cup eight times previously and and and he was writing a lot of california-based debased horses and one of my takeaways was definitely that this this year's Breeders Cup with completely unlike any out in California before I mean just uh-huh it just. It really started on Friday where the first four winners had all raised it Aqueduct Belmont and by the end of it I'm you know I'm looking at it it it. If you'd looked at the charts that Saturday at at Saratoga you wouldn't be surprised to see our ad or ts in four races Castellano and Rosario win into each and then Jose or ts Manny Frank Ricardo Santana All winner races well and Joe Bravo and that's what happened. They took twelve to fourteen races and and all twelve of those horses that race in New York this year now very strong on that on that front and ah not to say that Just had the conversation with Nick. Lock about the euro's and there were there were solid efforts and solid board hits in addition to Iridescence win but The you know the and there were solid performances from west coast sources to bell. Athena's Bella Fina. At under under certain circumstances dances might have won. The united almost looked like a winner hundred yards from the wire There were there were plenty of of solid performances from every region In some cases. Look at Vino. Vino having been into California. I think counselor a lot. You fold in folding would ask. Did you know getting there early with Matali Actually Navarro to I mean in Navarro got there early with a chance. A Lot A lot of times the a Lotta Times. The juvenile turf sprang can be like locally based sources can do all your top two in that race were both based in California with Peter Miller and you the one hundred and thirty five bucks. That's right that's right. That's right his second his second in the race in three years. I'm just looking at the list to spun to run from Philadelphia. So you get you get a a regional kind of a B.. Track player are sharing sharing holiday for new. New York's thunder run actually ran in a mate. Nice at act backer. And the winner but I mean the parks and mom Sharing base at Far Hills at far hell and Maryland bred. That's a couple of times Toga. Yeah yeah everybody everybody got their Lixin. Actually when you when you kind of go through this And I'll just say I I came away. I mean granted. I thought the four big stars coming into enforces with the serious horsey. Our aspirations Bricks Mourner Corner Sister Charlie and Matola two of the four one I think it really does come down horse a year two bricks and mortar and Matola Louis. But I'm giving the edge bricks mortar. I thought it was fantastic campaign. He had been a mile or previously. Before you know getting hurt and undergoing that surgery and I like the fact that Brad Cox I mean Brown ran him. You know he never ran he. Random and six different courses six different states. You went from Florida to Louisiana to Kentucky Hockey to New York to Illinois and the California To win a mile and a half for the first time in his career so to me. He's a deserving of the year well and and driving home the point about the mile and a half for people that because they always beat all the same types and didn't stretch himself then no he did and and you know the there was even people that were incredulous about him going the mile and a half so you know that that score extra points Without a doubt yeah definitely and you know to me One of the Mike Smith that made the point After a couple Oh. He ran second on a pair of privet favorites midnight zoo in Omaha Beach. And he's made the point that he'd right like those races back because it was hard to 'cause over that track track but to me it was more so that those horses were caned on the rail going into the first turn. Blue Prize was tenth early. You know tolley Holy Arosa could be five or six minutes off the pace. But they're jocks really at. That did a great job keeping them in the clear and I really thought midnight. These to you You know continue just to be in traffic through into the far turn. And when she got out she finished great as a case I mean they the great job on on TV and other highlighting it where I think of a blueprint. It's got the jump on her because of the trip the greed and it and it it also. It should be noted for people that are you know insisting that the track nobody could close well. WHOA that's not true? which is simply me? Just look at the chart for the distaff. What do you mean nobody could close at that? Just you know Omaha. Beach closed closed In in as well came from often and others whitmore made up. I mean it wasn't going to get to the winners and the the exact pair But he closed Idiom really had down below chicken that juvenile fillies and that's when the track was absolutely at its worst deepest pissed most impossible right based on based on the figure and in fact. It's funny because yesterday. Paul Matisse was talking about how difficult Friday was to make figures and then it was echoed by Jerry Brown on His On his experts board board. Somebody brought up. Paul's conversation and Jerry also echoed that the way the track changed from the you know the middle part of the day to by the time even the the juvenile boys ran so typically you would if the juvenile of the males run more than two seconds faster than the phillies. You'll get say their way better than the nose Philly but I do think it was. It was a track getting off faster later. And I. I'm I'm not down on British idiom or Donna Boise at all even though that right they came home. I think they should be still terrific runners. And you know it's it's hard to gauge coming out of the juvenile being real adobe guy Exactly what that means going forward so into court definitely Nice Horse Court Vision You know hasn't isn't had much success at Stud but he's bread You know fire. Classic types with that pedigree of his female family has a lot of stamina influences. It just doesn't have much class. You won't find any stakes winners really in that immediate female family well your final the final takeaways. My final take away so I just you know I you know I was. I thought you know it was a tragic end McGowan crew. I mean it was just a Really hurt to see that happy at the very end After a thirteen of the Breeders Cup races have that happened in the ashtray and and racing. Definitely I think has some issues and concerns going forward. the people in the industry maybe do a better job messaging but I still remain. Optimistic is the horserace fan about the future and I was. I came away like in the Breeders Cup. I thought there was some great performances and Looking for work once again the next year very good well. We're looking forward to the action this weekend give us some thoughts about Churchill had terrific card even today yesterday and Wednesday were good and of course the Commonwealth on Saturday the feature the Grade Three Mile and a sixteenth. The three year olds on the grass. It is an absolute war. Some thoughts about what's been going on while everybody was paying attention to Breeders Cup and and we got to look forward to this weekend. Yeah they had three stakes last week and In the MEA mischief flatmate go for the sale and and look good. She loves Churchill Downs Multiple Grade. One winner there in the Divine Queen got off to bad start. Art Never Fire in the In Saturday stakes chill Lewke and Sally's Kirwin breakers Swin She tried the Indiana Oaks folks earlier.

"For your decisions. You can't just say of the governor told me to do it. I thought one of the surprises was when he talked about the beachside conversation. He had with Henry Kissinger in Malibu in the nineteen seventies. Fortunately, we're on audio. So hopefully, people are not visualizing that. But Kissinger had some interesting advice for him. Let's listen to that clip think back on something Henry kisses, you told me. Sitting on the beach at Mela boo in the seventies and kissing you said. What? You have the most flexibility to act when you're the least amount information when it's very clear, your options are highly limited. So. Certain amount of intuition and. Scouting out. The future would be my might be some advice to anybody wants to listen, I'm trying to cash in the young Jerry Brown. Henry Kissinger the beach invalid of been quite well. In swimsuits. Maybe no, I don't think. So. I spent a little time Melvin beach in those days. Well, let me ask you find a governor you actually. Your signature is on my college diploma. And on my daughter's college diploma for me. I just imagining now when you came in for the second term, do you feel like the experience of having gone through eight years. Previously was great advantage. Yes. I also found the second time around was much more interesting. Maybe because we have more serious problems. Maybe because I had more experienced people around me, maybe because I was older maybe all those combinations. But this has been a very exciting eight years. Very interesting. And I enjoy every day of moment, and I will till eleven fifty nine on Sunday. So, but it's different than when I was the first time I've already run for president less than two years. So I was restless I'm not I'm still restless, but I'm more contented in my vocation. Okay. We are back and just a final round of questions. I'm curious as to what your thoughts are. You know, Gavin Newsom is coming in in a much different situation. Unlike Jerry Brown who had to say, no in felt comfortable saying, no. And whether they liked it or not most immigrants did not they accepted that it's going to get an 'isms going to come in with a surplus and and a lot of assets for spending. What do you think? I'd say there are some similarities, but I think the big differences as as we mentioned earlier when governor Brown with I came into office..

"So I think he addressed the issue the needed to be addressed. And as you mentioned, John all a lot of other issues. Didn't didn't get address beyond that issue? Would you think what were some of your impressions of the interview? Well, I mean just thinking over the full course of Jerry's second term here. I think one of the big things about him that doesn't get talked about as much as you know, what happened when he was the mayor of Oakland, and how that really affected how he approached his second go at the governor's office. He people accused them of being washed up then when he ran for mayor and he won. And he really took advantage of the opportunity to learn how to be pragmatic about his governing. And it was also the moment where he really saw. And understood kind of the issues that he was going to be dealing with in the state of California on a on a much bigger canvas. As governor, you know, poverty, inequality, the housing crisis all of those things he kind of got an understanding for when he was mayor of Oakland. And even though, you know, he maybe he fixed things maybe you didn't fix things as far as California went as much as we would like when he came into the governor's office. He had that focus on detail. And then he was also able to kind of do the big dreaming that we love Jerry Brown for you know, he was able to see like to say we're going to we're going to try and invest in big things like high speed rail, and we're going to go fight climate change. So he was able to keep that spirit of who he was in the seventies. And also kind of combine it with the experience that he had from being like, you know, the local guy in charge and to bring that to the entire state. And I think that's why people really really loved him so much this this time around. I was very struck. That's a really good point. I was really struck with a comparison with him as the young Covernor in the seventies. And the elder statesmen in in this particular time in I was struck by dancer about when we when we asked him, you any talk to ask them about comparing the two that he actually enjoyed this tour more than he did the first time around I mean to to that point too. I mean, he said so many tours into see him, you know, at this position. Now, where he's able to really be a mentor as it seems or I'm two point. I'm really curious what his advice would be to incoming governor just based off of all these experiences that he's had some of the pitfalls that he had to deal with. I think one of the things he had mentioned as well, as, you know, during his first term there wasn't like a major crisis that was going on. And then when he came in second time there was and just seeing how he was able to deal with that mitigate that I think is would be the most valuable advice. As for really any governor going forward. But certainly Gavin Newsom there were some as always with Jerry Brown. There were a few surprises. I have to say I can't count the number of politicians that I've interviewed either individually or is an editorial board over the four decades I've been in this business, but they're Jerry Brown's original. I mean, I love when you're talking to him in person the way he's looking at you with those stele is is you're asking a question. Like, he's you know, breaking down your question is to whether you bright you're a game. And then his answers are always always on point. You often direct many many times, very expansive. And then then I was thinking I was in my column for the Monday paper looking back at Jerry Brown. How many times he will look at you? After you ask a question and go what would you do? Has that Socrates type approach that's really at once kind of endearing. But I mean, he's not a glad handing politician by any means. No, not at all. I do think as long as we've noted what's great about Jerry Brown. The the housing crisis is a real kind of stigma on his his governorship and some of his answers about it. And and our interview and other interviews have been pretty disappointing..

"Welcome to this edition of opinion central. I'm Johnny is the Chronicle's editorial page editor here with my colleagues, Lois cassock off KAI Milner Spencer, Whitney, Josh gooky. What we had quite an interesting meeting this week both by conference call. I was there in person at the governor's mansion with Jerry Brown as he enters the final days of his sixteen years as California governor. Of course, there was a little gap in between one of the things that one of the questions that came up was is California's still govern governable he thinks it is what are some of your thoughts. I mean, did he really change the story line of California? I think he changed the story line of the the finances of the state in whether this date could actually try to move it self ahead without busting the budget, and his draconian you might say of fiscal discipline really changed that. But did he leave other things that needed to be dealt with like education and the pensions he left those along? So it's a mixed bag. It really depends. As always puts, you know, how you will get it. So for certain things, I feel like governor Brown was very strong on for example. I mentioned the pension, and as well, actually, I thought he when we spoke with them. He had interesting things to say, particularly around juvenile Justice reform, those one of the topics that you know, I was very interested in a chance to report on and two of the bills. He had signed his actually pushed California very much ahead in terms of reducing their overall rates of juvenile Justice offenders one Bill in particular will to get rid of by fourteen and fifteen year olds being tried in the same places as as adults, and you know, just just even approaching it from another place where you previously ten years ago twenty years ago that was unheard of as as he pointed out there used to be closer to around ten thousand juvenile offenders our new system, and now it's gone significantly down. So I think around four to five hundred so that's a significant dip in this speech. It's a lot more the changing climate when it comes to looking at a crime, and then also restorative Justice and other ways to military, you know, problems that we see in society. I kind of look at the Jerry Brown tenure as governor. At least a part two second tour in much the same way. I look at the Brock Obama presidency that you have to see it in the context of what he inherited he came in with a twenty seven billion dollar deficit. You know, everyone was right in the story. The national magazines were writing the story about California being a failed state. Remember Mitt Romney when he accepted, the Republican nomination may jokes about California being the next Greece. Nobody's writing a California still has plenty of problems. But nobody's writing those stories anymore. I agree with that. He took a sort of baseline issue that the state, you know, can't really function without having its its finances in some order, and he dealt with the issue that had to be dealt with and he was sort of a Nixon and China character because he was this person with unimpeachable liberal credentials who went in and did some relatively conservative things about the budget. And those also included tax increases, which which conservatives who claim to be fiscally disciplined on any longer seem capable of..
