#DamienTalks 22.2 – Legislative Roundup with Melanie Curry

Today, we’re broadcasting part 2 of the #DamienTalks discussing the best, and worst, news out of Sacramento. Yesterday, I talked to a trio of advocates around the state. Today, I’m talking with Melanie Curry, the editor of Streetsblog California.

You can hear yesterday’s broadcast, here.

Damien and Melanie, from our Facebook profiles.

Curry talks about some of the bills we didn’t touch on yesterday, including many of the ones she has covered at Streetsblog California over the past year. As always, the conversation with Melanie is a little more relaxed than our regular interviews as Melanie and I have been having these conversations without a microphone for months.

We’re always looking for sponsors, show ideas, and feedback. You can contact me at damien@streetsblog.org, at twitter @damientypes, online at Streetsblog California or on Facebook at StreetsblogCA.

Thanks for listening. You can download the episode at the Damien Talks homepage on Libsyn.
