They got a million seven during a pandemic when you couldn't even go door to door when you couldn't even stand outside a target or at Walmart and get people to sign the petition. They got a million seven latest poll I saw from KBC television in Los Angeles. The pro recall right now is sitting at 52%. That means, yes. Get rid of him. 52% of the latest poll. The No. Don't get rid of him. Gavin Newsom's the greatest. That's sitting around 40 some odd percent. I think it's I think it's actually 40 50 to 40 is what I saw.

Republicans Aim at GOP Base in 1st California Recall Debate

"We want to move onto a brand new topic. Our friend hugh hewitt was on vacation but he was actually on a working vacation last night because he. He hosted a debate between the various challenges. To gavin newsom in california's gubernatorial recall election. A number of people were on stage. None of them were named jane fonda. Wayne i'm actually a little surprised that jane funded didn't accept the invitation. Yes one hundred and forty two year. Old Viet cong candidate was not on the stage last night. Did you see the san francisco. Chronicle article jane fonda was considering jumping into the into the race because she was worried. That gavin newsom wasn't going to be able to defeat the recall i. That's the thing about the democratic party is kind of. They're kind of putting older eggs into gavin newsom basket right if he goes down. There's really not a lot of democrats that are kind of running as that's a hard campaign to run right now. Say no to the recall. But if you do vote for me instead yeah i mean. It's really an untenable yet. Some you get some some low level democrats that are running in this because they need some name recognition for later on down the road or they're looking at new figuring he's vulnerable and there should be some democrats in the mix goes down democrat. Statewide that is that is trying to seize the opportunity and saying let's toss him overboard but let's hang onto the state. There's there's really nobody high profile making that case. Well in that case jane punish a jumped in i mean she's only eighty three years old. That's still younger than jerry. Brown wasn't his last nine. Feinstein dianne feinstein. So that was that was a little music but no jane fonda was on the stage last night he would love that actually but This debate that was carried by thirteen fox affiliates all around the great state of california and hugh promise to run an officiant and and respectful debate. And i did it. But but dwayne you did didn't how how did it turn out. It was as advertised. They really didn't attack each other much. They pretty much kept their focus. On on gavin newsom and they were all asked very smart intelligent questions.

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

"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

"Vote coming from a Republican senator in a major win for governor Jerry Brown and state Democrats brown's next push was for his signature issue the fight against climate change he'd already established himself as a global leader on the issue California governor Jerry Brown spending six days here in China focusing on fighting climate change and governor brown travels next week to an international climate conference that's at the Vatican where he'll meet pope Francis but the governor traveled around the world to promote clean energy initiatives and signed memorandums with other countries to limit emissions basically becoming an unofficial US ambassador on climate change despite official US policy to the contrary and in twenty seventeen he would continue his efforts to push forward on the issue not just blocked trump back at home California's cap and trade program a complicated scheme to reduce carbon emissions was expiring in twenty twenty cap and trade was started by a Republican governor Arnold Schwarzenegger now brown wanted to partner with Republicans in the legislature to keep the carbon market going he couldn't envision just letting it expire teed up your head back the ball comes along he and his ideological by and you can't let every ball go by to get the ball rolling brown began talks with the top Republican in the state assembly Chad maze we had the months and months and months of conversations brown knew that his grand vision on climate policy could only go as far as old fashioned politics could take it most Republicans didn't wanna missions to be regulated through government mandates brown preferred cap and trade which could attract some Republican support even if it meant losing some liberal votes and some people said all units shin with all companies yes because I had to get the Republican vote brown was making a virtue out of necessity and he won two thirds vote to protect cap and trade from legal challenges to sweeten the pot for Republicans brown added millions of dollars for ag interests and mostly Democrats don't know take recalling his is the gist of it I don't mean that literally but they're not farm sensitive brown also made promises to Liberal Democrats to get their support he vowed to take on their top priority addressing the state's housing affordability crisis even if he maintained a healthy skepticism that government could make a difference in that area we addressed I was it was that high a single it would it still pressure mounted on both the right and the left for lawmakers to reject brown's cap and trade deal as too much of a compromise in public brown took on critics with unusual fervor making a rare appearance in a legislative hearing I'm not here about some cockamamie legacy that people talk about this in for me every day it is for you know it is for your resume real those doors he continued to negotiate somebody said it was like playing eight dimensional chess maze the Republican leader in the assembly of the time remembers telling brown that he had fifteen members of the GOP caucus on board with the cap and trade extension brown knew the final vote wouldn't be that easy that was a lesson I thought the effect I remember him saying chat I know you think that you've got fifteen but at the end of the day it's not going to be fifteen mais thought he knew his caucus and could deliver the votes but he had known for his years of experience that when when the pressure comes sometimes some folks will take the easy road brown was right late on the night of July seventeenth the legislature voted on the cap and trade extension one by one Republicans in the assembly cast their votes against the bill and for Democrats joined them round could not afford to lose another vote and he didn't we're gonna go down to Sacramento governor Jerry Brown wanted help to lobby for it yesterday and you got to sign a ten year extension of California's cap and trade program into law weeks later brown signed off on bills to fund affordable housing and make it easier for new housing developments to be approved in what some labeled the year of resistance brown had instead pushed forward Oregon vestments and roads housing and the environment resistance cells like defense we got a facts over into meaning initiative leadership now there is a point of resistance is is something but Kim in politics you thinking about doing something but not every thrust was a success when brown left office in twenty nineteen he left to massive projects uncompleted high speed rail and the delta tunnels high speed rail was approved by voters before brown took office but he wholeheartedly endorse the project at least in public well first of all I felt that getting rid of it would be difficult so we had a project the working people voted for it and then pull the plug on it they gave me pause it also gave me pause to go ahead but I had to choose one or the other he chose to push ahead framing it as a way to get cars off the road and fight climate change but he knew it was an up hill battle the author is the high speed rail road in such a way to make it extremely difficult to actually carry it out opponents argue that major changes to the plan required going back to the voters so the project became bogged down behind schedule over budget and mired in local opposition we literally had dozens and dozens of lawsuits we've lost cases that we won them on appeal and the the management of large projects is extremely difficult in America brown could say the same for the delta tunnels project an idea to move more water from north to south by typing it under the Sacramento delta even after spending hundreds of millions of dollars to plan the tunnels the project went no where and when Gavin Newsom took office he moved quickly to.

"Took the lead in the race then there was the late breaking news that Whitman had employed and then fired an undocumented housekeeper and brown began to pull away California cares to have remained a blue state generally Jerry Brown was elected governor over Meg Whitman leaning back the biggest spending contender in American history full of energy and ready to serve you the people of California thank you very much brown would take the reins of power time when California's future was very much in doubt the seventy two year old Democrat now faces an even tougher task putting back together what many feel is a fractured Golden State chief among the problems a twenty six billion dollar budget deficit well I did not know how to solve the deficit and I I thought about the idea of what is going to me is having a deficit is not to be very popular or pleasant in the campaign brown was able to think for himself by blocking out the advice of the political consulting class now he would resist the calls of fellow Democrats wanted to protect the state's vulnerable residents from painful budget cuts under the Republican governor Arnold Schwarzenegger the budget came with a combination of harsh cuts and some number fudging assuming revenues that often didn't come through but brown was committed to avoiding those kinds of gimmicks and we went about it in cutting cutting a lot of popular programs that if you look at it you see if you can really want to do that but we did the budget proposed by governor Jerry Brown almost evenly split.

"That brown and plan for the nineteen ninety election was turning into a pipe dream well it's always good to me of the November election here the budget was looking to be a million dollars a month I could not raise and again this is another one of these someone told me and ideas and there was no fairy tale ending furious that the Democrats did not fare as well as expected in last week's elections assemblyman John Burton is asking fellow Democrats to fire former governor Jerry Brown is state party chairman that many feel Democrats under performed in the nineteen ninety election headlined by Dianne Feinstein's lost Republican Pete Wilson in the governor's race the leaders like John Burton found a convenient scapegoat Jerry Brown why I didn't run for party chairman saying that I was going to raise all this money and put together the greatest grassroots organization in history and have a great registration drive that was Jerry Brown in early nineteen ninety one brown resigned as party chair he'd realized a hard truth about fundraising people just don't get excited about funding the nuts and bolts of democracy big donors would rather give the individual lawmakers than pay for voter registration for a simple reason elected officials have the ability to make decisions on issues important to donors the of life and death on a lot of things like the power to kill pass or change of bill so that powers in is translated into donations in the party then she backed into the elections that's the way our wonderful system works but it's very legislative deal oriented even though there's never a complete giant in other words there can't be a direct quid pro quo for donations as party chair brown had seen inside the guts of the modern political system that experience.

"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.

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.

"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..

"jerry brown" Discussed on It's All Political

"Scott Shafer Guy Marzorati. Welcome to it's all political. I would say welcome to the city of Saint Francis but we just six blocks the way all right so you guys sat down for forty hours of interviews with Jerry Brown I've listened to I think a bunch of episode six of them you did eight in total correct and And I love this. I gotTa say I'M GONNA shamelessly plugged because they expose the listener to the Jerry Brown that we reporters get to see a guy very funny a bit cranky always up fern argument and very nakedly politically savvy and in fact what what comes across here is It's how we kind of fluctuates from being sort of very idealistic about politics from his You know religious religious training almost to being just shamelessly politically opportunistic. And and he's so open about it. Here's what struck you totally. I mean from the very very first race. I mean when he ran statewide actually even before that he ran for the Community College District Board in Los Angeles and he was just wanted to test the name Brown because his data. Data's kicked out of office a few years later. So he's checking to see like is the name Jerry Brown or Edmund G Brown still a good one it was and then he ran. He manages to run as an outsider. Running thing for secretary of state talking about money and politics you know being a reformer and that's a good trick you know when Your Dad's been the governor for eight years and your name is Edmund g brown junior and you managed to run as an outsider right and did that and he was always talking of two things that come through in the podcast as he talks about and they both involve I versions versions of I one is the but for I and one is having a good I let's talk about When his What he means spy but for I which seems to be his governing principle when he's in When his first round governor right so this is as he's taking office in nineteen seventy five five with a real limit on what he views? The governor can actually do he. He described the government Sacramento kind of like a machine. He called the state. BUREAUCRATS GNOMES was basically. The GNOMES are in there so you kind of move in the lovers. So what what wouldn't be done but for me. What basically could I take on that? If I wasn't here wouldn't get done. And the first thing we highlight alight is just the governor's image and this is something. He took so much from Ronald Reagan. which is I have the power to kind of shape this image that more than any bill more than any executive order huber? We're gonNA notice things like I'm giving up the limousine for a bloop limit. I'm giving up. The governor's Mansion Selena lost. These are the kind of frugal gestures. That I think we'll breakthrough and at the time and did break through and kind of gave him an image that went beyond the state of California and he's very cognizant of optics all the time from a very young age and where. Where does that come from? Well Gosh I mean I think growing up in and around politics and being an astute observer. I mean. It's interesting because when he was a kid you know we be the conversations we have with him. We're SORTA chronological and so we talked to them about being a kid growing up in San Francisco is data's the DA and then the attorney general and he claimed that politics was not talked about in the house. It that was not part of the family dinner conversation for example and initially. He didn't really want to get into politics. He went into the seminary admitting to be a Jesuit priest and at some point like the light just goes off. He was actually in the governor's mansion his dad was governor up in Sacramento and he was studying for the bar. examinee overheard this conversation with his dad and Jess unruh the speaker who wanted to run For for the for Governor instead of Pat Brown he the light just went off he just said I wanna be. I WANNA be Governor one day and also we were talking about about image Jerry Brown. He's old enough to have lived through politics becoming an optical game right like when Pat Brown was running for district attorney of of San Francisco. You is making speeches on the Radio Radio and Publishing Position Papers Jerry Brown watched kind of the transformation of politics into this era. Where you've got to look good? And he talked again and again about how good Ronald Reagan looked on television. And what Nice suits used to wear that all was really thinking in really around the nineteen sixty six election when Ronald Reagan beat his father. And I think you go back and watch those debates it. It is like watching a politician from a new era of versus kind of the old guard. Just in the way that they're presenting him with Jerry Brown took off from that. Yeah and I was is Also I love hearing Jerry talk about his childhood because he rarely talks about it and he still very uncomfortable about talking about the several times. and which it in your interviews with them you try to get him to talk about his feelings and his Impressions of things. How did that go? He makes fun one of you like he'll say oh. You want me to talk now about how I feel. You want me to emotes you know. And and he really has very resistant to that And didn't really get into it much it all the first time. We sat down. The very first thing we talked about was his childhood and it was like after this first session guy in our like. Oh my God. This isn't going to work. He's just WanNa talk to us and then he warmed warmed up and we actually circled back much later to talk about his dad and the influences on so he did warm up and he was much more I think forthcoming that said he is. He's he's much more intellectual I think we we know that he's not. He's not someone who talks about his emotions are as feelings and He gets emotional. He gets passionate for sure but it's also usually about ideas shoes contained within politics. I mean it's interesting. You go back. Pat Brown did a similar oral history with the Bancroft Library. That is full of. I made this decision. I was so depressed oppressed by the reaction I got and I felt so bad and I had this relationship you get none of Jerry Brown is it's all intellectual it's all really contained within as you say the political mind. Well it's which was fasting because you use a lot of those archival clips. I'm guessing from a specially from Pat Brown when he talks about the Carol Trestman. c'mon execution and how he wrestled with that and we don't get a lot of wrestling from Jerry. We do get a couple of insights that were thought. Were really interesting. This thing about When he shows some vulnerability and surprisingly the one thing that he's expressed some regrets about are the medfly? Ed Fly how we reacted to the medfly refreshes on what the medfly was for the listening. Well it really resonated for me because I moved to California in in nineteen eighty one and that was exactly when he was wrestling with this thing and there was this pest this Mediterranean fruit fly. That was infesting fruit trees and other kinds of crops and so the growers in California really wanted to get rid of it it was it was threatening their livelihood and the produce and all the other products that come out of the Central Valley and in particular down in and was now silicon valley. There were all these trees and and there was a lot of pressure to spray malathion and Jerry Brown. A resisted resisted resisted and then finally after a lot of timing and hiring. The Reagan administration threatened to boycott California produce and he acknowledged. That was a good move. You know that was a smart political move because it forced him to do it and and he actually I think I believe he went down and slept down there that night and Los Gatos while they were spraying to be with the people but looking back on it I think of all the things he talked with us about to me. That seemed like the one he wishes he could do over because he realized it. It was really problematic. Damaged his his his reputation in a way that I think lingered when he ran for the US Senate in Nineteen eighty-two against Wilson. Of course he lost that election. I think by that time people just thought this guy is just so disorganized. He's not at all Does Not make a decision. He's not decisive and and I think he really feels thinks about as thought about that. A Lot Speaking of Disorganized and and when he talks when you talk to people about his first term You know you have Him there's a lot of chaos and the and the administration they're people don't know what to do who You know they say well. Jerry WANNA be philosopher King and then we're supposed to figure out what to do with new guy you referred to the gnomes earlier it made me think of a current governor we have. It's with a Gavin newsom. We were I was on your show a couple of weeks ago. We're talking about this and do you get the sense sense that now newsom has a much more professional team They are he's also been a much more seasoned politician Jerry Brown and who came from you know from the Secretary of State's office office with thirty parallels here between year one of Gavin newsom in year one or two of Jerry Brown totally and I think even beyond just the governor's themselves when you talk about bringing in in teams up into the legislature functions. So much as there's so much stored history there and when you bring in people who haven't worked in the capital having worked in state government as both Jerry Brown on and gathered newsom did there is a huge learning curve of just kind of figuring out relationships with the legislature. They're both they're in similar places in that you know when Jerry Brown arrived in nineteen seventy five all the the state legislators this before term would term limits. They're all older than him. I mean there's they worked with his dad and I think there's a huge learning curve. Just deciding how do we how does our administration creation work. How do we work with the legislature? And what are we prioritize me. Jerry Brown was someone who once he got into an issue. He was all in on that and oftentimes in state government. It's hard to do.

"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.

"He didn't have necessarily a big crisis to deal with immediately in this case gave new Smith plenty of things to do with its housing crisis. It's from the environmental perspective doing with the wildfires and figuring out a way to deal with particularly in the wake of the deadliest wildfire wildfire California's seen in its history, you know, figuring out a way to deal with that also along with the other myriad problems. Yes, there is certainly a surplus, but how much of that money is going to be going to fixing all these extreme issues that you know, that are plaguing the state right now. So you know, he certainly has a lot of on his plate coming in. I know some of the things he, you know, he's certainly been big on education. And so it will be very interesting to see how he is able to kind of deal with with all these issues and it listed way. Well, you know, one of the things that Jerry Brown. Has been saying for months now is that you know, actually Gavin might be facing a crisis similar to the one. He was facing when he got into office sooner than we know. And certainly the economic signs are pointing towards downturn within the next year and a half so Gavin may wind up having to say, no a lot more than he thinks or than the public expects, certainly. But what I will say is I think Gavin's priorities are different than Jerry's Gavin is much more interested in housing much more interested in homelessness, much more interested in kind of restoring some of the levels of spending that we had before the crisis, and you know, he recognized I think he's also a little bit more susceptible to public opinion. And definitely the polling shows that the public wants to see more spending on education, health and human services as opposed to, you know, Jerry's endless fixation on the reserves. So he's going to be a different governor. But it's also a different. State, and you know, one of the things we love about Jerry is that he's been here for so much of the history of the twentieth and twenty first century of California. But it's also kind of like it is different time. And it's gonna be interesting to watch how Gavin deals with some of the same challenges that Jerry was dealing with. But also a whole new set that Jerry didn't really pay as much attention to. Are there? Parting thoughts, Josh Lois. I think you know, I think it's true that the economy definitely looks like it's it's an might change soon and Newsom has has promised a whole lot which is going to make it more difficult for him to take a a Brown like stance when that time comes so it's gonna be really interesting to watch. I think it's great that he has taken made housing more of a priority. But he's put himself in a difficult position by promising to produce three point five million homes, which is frankly ridiculous number and he's already kind of backed off of that a little set. It was an audacious goal. Not a promise. So, you know, that's just one example of the many big sort of promises. He's made that that as kind mentioned could could get even more difficult. But if the economy turns around to give actually use the term audacious did he literally? I think I accidentally adopted is this language literally Lois. The thing. I'd say about Gavin. It's he came into the job as mayor of San Francisco by thoroughly researching issues at nobody else wanted to touch, namely homelessness, and he's had a lot of years to look into these other issues that he's talking about now health care for single payer system healthcare for all and early childhood education. He started his mayorship by changing the law to allow same sex marriage. I don't know that we'll see something that flamboyant as he steps into the governor's office. But he's he's more of a risk taker than Brown, and I think we'll see that an will be the next four years. It could be very interesting. I think that's a good point there. The point I make about Gavin Newsom if you compare him when he first became merits ever Cisco, and he got in a lot of unnecessary petty personal fights with progressives on the board of supervisors, I think he's..

"Yeah. I think he's right. By the way, though, the redevelopment and and spending in general are not going to solve the housing crisis. It's really about the the local zoning that suppressed housing construction, and that's what he didn't wanna get into particularly. And and and and the legislature kind of had to to push him toward toward doing more of any surprises in our interview with Jerry Brown. It to go back to my earlier point one of questions, I was asking or Gotcha. To ask the governor Brown was around like restorative Justice in juvenile Justice reform, and one of the things he pointed out, which I thought was we great was yes, he signed bills around it. But he said by no means is he the the main purveyor that he said activists other people from the community or the ones that have stepped up, and that was something that I think came through as a threat they'll out of the conversation course, without a lot of having that local participation means so much. I mean, 'cause yes, you know, you can do as much as you can by signing the bills that come in front of him, or you know, review and things of that nature, but ultimately comes down in many cases, and even to your point Josh regards to how local communities mogul cities are actually handed a lot of these problems. So whether it's housing, whether it's working at a criminal Justice reform, there has to be a lot of teamwork and collaboration that go goes into this. Instead of just waiting on the gun. To fix it or waiting on the mayor to do something it has to be a joint effort on everyone's part. Well, that's one of his basic beliefs in democracy is you have to take responsibility in. That's why changed the funding for the schools. And a lot of people are very critical of how the schools are funded now and how the governance of the schools happened. But that was his whole point you need to be active at the local level and step up to the bar and take responsibility.

"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..
