Observer Radio Episode 56: Ann Richards’ Return to the Limelight


This week Observer staff writer Patrick Michels and politics writer Chris Hooks stop by the studio to discuss a string of bizarre attack ads created in the clash between Dan Patrick and David Dewhurst.

Managing editor Brad Tyer joins us in the studio, along with freelance writer Josh Rosenblatt, to discuss HBO’s new documentary on former Texas Governor Ann Richards. David Theis also joins us via phone to talk about Texas’ indigenous cuisine. No, we’re not talking about Tex-Mex.

Observer Radio now appears on KEOS in College Station on Sundays at 6:30 p.m. and on KOOP in Austin on Tuesdays at 2:00 p.m. Subscribe to Observer Radio on iTunes and never miss an episode.
