The Texas Miracle #4: How to Die in Texas
On this week’s podcast: Tips for shuffling off this Texas mortal coil, a Trinity River showdown and a prairie defilement that’s nothing to sniff at.
On our Try This At Home segment, we’ll learn how to do something you only get one chance to do right: die. It’s not as morbid as it may seem — which is why, actually, the person who’s going to talk us through it is so great at her job.
And as we always do, we’ll head out to the Texas tiki shed for a news roundtable, this week with Austin food aficionado Paula Forbes, Texas Observer editor Forrest Wilder and the Houston Chronicle’s Bobby Cervantes, to talk about the ride-sharing battle in Austin, flooding in Houston and how Texas continues to doggedly pursue making getting a public education as hard as possible.
