Now, yes now, the budget race really begins at the state Capitol. Can't you feel the excitement?
This week's Capitol Connection podcast -- recorded via Skype (which, no, we likely won't try again) -- takes a look at the big week that was in state finances: Gov. Jerry Brown's budget revision and the Legislature's own analysts poking some holes in the governor's budget math.
Anthony York of the Los Angeles Times and I talk about what middle ground there is for a deal, and how it's likely to get sealed behind closed doors.
As always, you can subscribe to the podcasts via iTunes or SoundCloud.
And yes, an apology for the audio quality; the schedule this week was a tough one.
