In this week’s episode, Observer editor Dave Mann and politics writer Chris Hooks stopped by the studio to discuss a few of the more surprising outcomes from the Texas primary.

Our guest this week is freelance writer Carolyn Jones whose latest Observer piece, “Texas’ New Abortion Law is Driving Women to Extremes,” chronicles what one Houston women went through to have an abortion after her doctor said her unborn child was incompatible with life.
