FROM THIS EPISODE

As California’s youngest-ever governor in 1975, many Californians didn’t know what to make of Jerry Brown. What do people make of him now that he’s the state’s oldest-ever governor?

Hillary Clinton met with Senator Elizabeth Warren Friday, fueling speculation about a possible dream ticket for liberal Democrats. Warren has endorsed Clinton, but she hasn’t always been such an ardent supporter of her.

Next, terminally ill adults now have the right to die on their own terms in California. What do doctors think about the new law?

Then, games, heists, and ghostly hijinks come to a cineplex near you this weekend.

And finally, coming of age is a common theme in art, especially movies. “The Fits,” the directorial debut of Anna Rose Holmer, takes the subject in an innovative way. With little dialogue, the film is more like a dreamy meditation on the world of a young girl and the dance troupe she’s joined.

Jerry Brown: From Governor ‘Moonbeam’ to the ‘Adult in the Room’ 10 MIN, 31 SEC

In 1975, Jerry Brown’s first year in office as the Governor of California, ABC News reported that many Californians didn’t know what to make of the state’s youngest-ever governor. Forty-one years later, as the state’s oldest-ever governor, that may still be the case. Since Brown’s return to the top job in California politics, his budgets have been fiscally conservative, even austere. That’s surprised and angered some liberals in the party, but not those who remember the governor’s first run in office.

A Clinton/Warren ‘Dream Ticket’? 7 MIN, 46 SEC

Hillary Clinton met with Senator Elizabeth Warren Friday, fueling speculation that Clinton talked to Warren about being a possible running mate. It would be a dream ticket for liberal Democrats. Warren endorsed Clinton Thursday night, but she hasn’t always been such an ardent supporter of her. In fact, in her 2003 book, The Two-Income Trap, Warren suggested that Clinton wasn’t a very principled politician, and that she bowed to Wall Street pressure in a controversial vote she cast on a bankruptcy bill in 2001.

What Do Doctors Think About California’s Aid-In-Dying Law? 10 MIN, 36 SEC

Terminally ill adults now have the right to die on their own terms in California. The so-called End of Life Option Act went into effect Thursday. It allows terminally ill patients who are mentally competent and have less than six months to live to request medication that would kill them. Not all doctors are on board with the new law, though. As it went into effect yesterday, a group of physicians sued to stop it, saying it’s unconstitutional. Other doctors say they’re not opposed to the law necessarily, but that they’ll choose not to prescribe the life-ending drug themselves. Many doctors, however, welcome the option to help dying patients in pain end their lives on their own terms.

‘The Fits’: The Dreamy Coming of Age Sundance Favorite 3 MIN, 59 SEC

Coming of age is a common theme in art, especially movies. That moment between childhood and adolescence is full of drama. A new movie set in a Cincinnati housing project with an all African American cast takes on the subject in an innovative way. The Fits, the directorial debut of filmmaker Anna Rose Holmer, is about an 11-year-old girl named Toni who becomes fascinated by a group of older girls in a dance troupe which she joins before seeing some of them come down with mysterious seizures, convulsions and fainting – ‘the fits’. The film has little dialogue, but is more like a dreamy meditation on Toni’s world.

Anna Rose Holmer, Director
