On Tuesday, at the end of a re-trial, Ed Graf pleaded guilty to two counts of murder and received a 60-year sentence. But because of a mandatory release policy that was in place at the time of his offense, Graf may be out in just a few months. Observer editor Dave Mann makes sense of all of this.

Bryce Milligan from indie publisher Wings Press joins us to talk about the Texas Book Festival happening in Austin this weekend.
