In this week’s episode of Observer Radio, we examine Kesha Rogers, the Democratic frontrunner challenging U.S. Sen. Cornyn, and seek to understand why the Texas Democratic Party doesn’t want you to vote for her. Also, staff writer Melissa del Bosque explains why experts think the arrest of Mexican drug kingpin Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman could lead to more violence.

Our guest this week is author Doug Dorst whose latest work (a collaboration with J. J. Abrams) is literally a book within a book.
