Governor Jerry Brown has had perhaps one of the most colorful political careers of all time. Son of California political royalty, he served as California's governor in  1974 and 1978, ran for President in 1976 and in 1980 famously challenged President Jimmy Carter, who belonged to the same party, for the nomination.

Those events, and much more, are chronicled in the new Brown biography, "Trailblazer." We speak with author Chuck McFadden.
