This week on the Texas Observer’s weekly half-hour compendium of Texas news and oddities, our own Naveena Sadasivam, along with freelance journalist Jessica Luther, comedian Bob Khosravi and host Andrea Grimes try to suss out what’s going on with Texas’ calf-roping Ag Commissioner Sid Miller, who’s currently under investigation for misappropriating taxpayer dollars. Observer staffer Patrick Michels takes us to Houston to talk with Janet Baker, the host of a new radio show for grieving parents who’ve lost children to police violence, and we’ll take Greg Abbott and the rest of the state leadership to task for their repeated mishandling of Texas’ child protective services crisis. Throughout the show, we’ll hear Texas Miracle listeners call in with their ideas about what GOP presidential candidate and Texas senator Ted Cruz did with the 100 cans of soup (yes, you read that right) that he bought after he and his wife returned from their honeymoon.
