Episode notes

Is she a progressive or a cop? A Berkeley radical or a Beltway insider? In this biographical series, San Francisco Chronicle reporters Joe Garofoli and Tal Kopan tell the story of the life and career of Kamala Harris. From her first political experiences — when her activist, immigrant parents brought her to protests in a stroller — through her pioneering stints as San Francisco district attorney and California attorney general, then on to the U.S. Senate and becoming the first Asian American and first African American woman nominated to a presidential ticket by a major party. The Chronicle has been covering Kamala Harris for more than a quarter of a century. Join us for a look back at how she arrived at being the vice presidential nominee.
