There’s no better way to understand the issues and people shaping California today than through its colorful and complex history. Few understood the depth of that history better than Dr. Kevin Starr, the late author of a definitive eight-volume history of California. His work is the gold standard for the Golden State. Dr. Starr died two years ago, but we kick off the California Sun podcast with a special conversation I had with Dr. Starr about California from 1950 to 1963. As you will hear, it’s a time that shaped so much of the California we live in today.
