State Sen. Mike Merrifield discusses his love for the outdoors and the reason he doesn’t miss “The Big Bang Theory,” a sitcom about nerds, in a new episode of “Behind the Politics,” the weekly podcast produced by Colorado’s Senate Democrats. He also recalls with pride that he had the distinction during his first term in the House as the lawmaker who felt the wrath of the speaker’s gavel most often.

State Sen. Dominick Moreno, Commerce City Democrat, has been in office longer than many of his fellow lawmakers but is still the youngest member of the state Senate, a distinction he explores in this week's episode of “Behind the Politics,” a podcast produced by the Senate Democrats. The 32-year-old member of the Joint Budget Committee also talks about the "huge challenges" balancing constitutional mandates in the $26.8 billion budget bill introduced late Monday in the Senate and reveals the most embarrassing moment he's experienced at the Capitol, which involved a group of rambunctious elementary school students who accidentally summoned the State Patrol.

State Sen. Steve Fenberg discusses a range of topics in an episode of “Behind the Politics,” a weekly podcast produced by the Senate Democrats posted online this week, including his work engaging young voters over the course of a decade with New Era Colorado, the Silver Plume bar he opened last summer with a few friends and some amusing incidents when his youthful appearance — he's 33 but could easily pass for several years younger — has flummoxed Capitol staff .
