Airing tonight on KQED TV is a special collaboration between MacNeil Lehrer Productions and KQED called Broken California. This project brought together hundreds of Californians to try and figure out what’s gone wrong with the state’s government, and how it can be fixed.

The program will air at 7:30pm tonight. In the meantime, here’s some of the discussion taking place on the web using hashtag #BrokenCa.
