Stanley Tucci tells the story of Jerry Brown, California's longest serving governor.

Brown is a singular figure in Californian politics, having presided over California from 1975 to 1983 and 2011 to 2019.

In a wide-ranging interview, Brown shares his thoughts on California's past and future.

A great source of inspiration is his great grandfather, who came over in the Gold Rush.

But Jerry Brown believes after a century of growth, California must now learn to embrace limits.
