PODCAST: California Democratic State Convention roundup

On Episode #24 of “CAN YOU HEAR ME, LONG BEACH?” we get a little bit political as a good portion of the newsroom crammed around the table to talk about the just completed California Democratic Party State Convention, that turned out to be kinda fun, you know, when people weren’t hitting each other with transportation devices. Brian Addison, Thomas Cordova, Kelly Puente, Stephanie Rivera and publisher David Sommers(!) join Steve Lowery to talk about all the behind the scenes, scenes, including Mayors on Parade, why so many people seemed to have a really hard time with a cute story Brian wrote about restaurants and why, once again, so many folks are mad for Bernie. To wit:
