Dear newly relocated political staffers of the Newsom administration and others: Welcome to our flat, hot city, which we never, ever call “Sactown.” Doing so will establish you as a noob. We do, however, enthusiastically and lovingly call it “Sacto” or “Sac,” and we especially cherish opportunities to say “Old Sac.” Practice it at home, “Ooooolddd Saaaac.” Feels good, right? The city can try to rebrand it as “The Waterfront,” but it will always be Old Sac to us.

In Part 2 of our back-to-back podcasts on health policy, Capitol Weekly headed over to the California Endowment’s offices on K Street to chat with the Endowment’s VP Daniel Zingale about what a repeal of the Affordable Care Act would mean for California. Zingale also weighs in on other health-related topics including Universal Health Care, how your neighborhood affects your health and EXACTLY how bad soda (“it’s mostly chemicals”) is for you. We conducted this interview on Friday, Jan. 27, 2017.
