Insight: Political Junkie Goes West / Feast / Wrong For Each Other / Terri Lyne Carrington





Political Junkie Goes West The Political Junkie is turning his analytical gaze west. Ken Rudin, known to NPR listeners from his many years talking all things politics with Neal Conan on "Talk of the Nation," joins Insight for our signature segment that puts California politics in the context of the national scene. Rudin joins us from Washington D.C. in an effort to put it all in perspective.

Feast As skeptical as you may have been about Sacramento’s new Farm-to-Fork persona, it seems the label isn’t going anywhere anytime soon. Chefs, restaurants, farmers and now the city’s daily newspaper are all onboard the Farm-to-Fork train, and ready to see where it goes. The Sacramento Bee will be covering all-things Farm-to-Fork in its new weekly section “Feast” every Sunday. The editor of the new section, Tim Swanson, and Sacramento Bee Food and Wine Reporter Chris Macias join us to explain what the newspaper wants to do with “Feast.”
