Observer Podcast Episode 22: Getting a Lege Up

Patrick Michels

Texas State Capitol in Austin, Tex.Observer staff writers Patrick Michels, Forrest Wilder and editor Dave Mann join the show for our first podcast about the 83rd Texas Legislature. What’s to be done with the budget surplus? What’s with all these free iPads readily available to public schools? Is virtual frog dissection better or worse than the real thing? All these questions and more are answered in this episode of the Observer podcast.

Follow all of our legislative coverage via our blog, “Floor Pass,” and our Texas Legislature page.
