How California’s Katie Hill and Katie Porter are preparing for their new roles in Congress

California has seven newly-elected members of Congress. They’re all Democrats who flipped historically Republican districts. At KCRW, we want to know what life is like for some of them, and what they’re doing before getting sworn in next month. Press Play producer Michell Eloy sat down with Katie Hill in northern LA County and Katie Porter in Orange County. She’ll be following them to DC to cover their first week as lawmakers.
