Observer Radio Episode 41: Mental Health in Harris County

Jen Reel

If you want treatment for mental illness in Houston, your best bet may be to go to jail. Observer staff writer Emily DePrang explains why.  Also, Observer managing editor Brad Tyer join us to discuss how close we are to commercial drone use.

Our guests for this episode are freelance writer Chris Hooks and University of New Mexico professor Molly Molloy who says the story of femicides in Ciudad Juarez is more myth than reality.

Observer Radio now appears on KPFT in Houston at 4:30 p.m. on Fridays and KOOP in Austin on Tuesdays at 2:00 p.m. Subscribe to Observer Radio on iTunes and never miss an episode!
