As Gov. Jerry Brown prepares to give his final State of the State address as Governor of California, Insight takes a look at the man who’s led the Golden State – not once, but twice.

Political experts, journalists, friends and critics join host Beth Ruyak for a special one-hour examination of Brown’s politics – now and then.

We’ll talk legacy with Politico Reporter David Siders, Los Angeles Times Columnist George Skelton and biographer Chuck McFadden. Author and environmentalist Bill McKibben and Sierra Club President Kathryn Phillips offer perspective on Brown’s environmentalism and work on Climate Change policies. And CapRadio’s Capitol reporters Ben Adler and Ben Bradford weight in. Join us for our Insight special Brown’s Final Year.
