Capitol Weekly starts regular podcast: Episode 1

Political junkies lend us your ears: Capitol Weekly has always taken care of its readers, of course, but now we’re taking care of our listeners, too.

We’ve started a weekly podcast.

The first Capitol Weekly Podcast, which appeared today, can be heard here on SoundCloud, a global audio distribution platform, and we hope you enjoy it.  Our SoundCloud profile can be seen here.

And if you don’t like the show, don’t tell us — we media stars are very sensitive.

The participants on our maiden effort, plucked from our vast staff, are Capitol Weekly Editor John Howard and Tim Foster, the executive director of the nonprofit Open California, which publishes Capitol Weekly. We’ll grab other guests as we go along, naturally.

We tape the show at our lavish downtown offices overlooking H Street in the shadow of the EPA building.

The idea is to run the podcast on Mondays to give listeners a sense of the week to come in Sacramento. We ran the first one today, Tuesday, because Monday was a holiday.

Today’s show was just over six minutes, and we hope to keep the shows to about 10 minutes each, although some may go a bit longer.

So listen up: What could possibly go wrong?
