The legislature may not have been in session this week, but Harrisburg still saw some budget-related action. A new revenue report came out, and brought with it the unwelcome news that this fiscal year's budget shortfall is even bigger than previously predicted.

On a rainy Friday, we head down the street from the Capitol to Little Amps coffee shop to talk about what it all means. This episode features John Baer, longtime Harrisburg reporter and regular columnist for Philly.com, the Philadelphia Inquirer and the Philadelphia Daily News.

We also discuss Pennsylvania's shifting population and demographics, as well as some gubernatorial campaign trail controversy featuring York County Senator Scott Wagner.

The podcast will go up on iTunes sometime next week. But new episodes will also be available right here every Friday. You can also feel free to email and tweet comments and questions to katie_meyer@witf.org or @katieemeyer4
