Welcome to Fixing California, a re-booted version of the Crossing Lines podcast with Lanhee Chen. In this new series, Lanhee and Troy Senik (and occasionally, some guests) will be placing the Golden State under a microscope and offering up actual solutions to the many issues facing the country’s biggest state. This week, Lanhee and Troy look at the coming recall election of Governor Gavin Newsom. What caused it (spoiler alert: decades long single party rule), how it might play out, and what the long term implications it may have for the state and possibly for the country. Also, the coming scandal at the California EDD (Employment Development Department) involving huge amounts of money, including large amounts of money that went into the pockets of (not kidding) prisoners in the California penal system.
