Capitol Weekly Podcast: Behind the Scenes at the Back to Session Bash

January means one thing on the Sacramento legislative calendar (well, aside from the governor’s budget): the annual Back to Session Bash!

Lobbyist David Quintana launched the soiree 15 years ago and has been its guiding light as the event grew from a modest gathering for Capitol staffers into the star-studded blowout it is today.

John Howard and Tim Foster sat down with Quintana to talk about the early years, the “Too Short Incident,” what he’s learned in 15 years of hosting the Bash — and to dig for clues about the surprise entertainer (“our biggest ever”) booked for this year’s Bash.

Listen up for ALL the details and what to expect on January 16, 2020.
