This week on the Texas Miracle podcast, the Texas Observer’sweekly compendium of everything you need to know, but maybe wish you didn’t, about the Lone Star state, we’ve got Pokemon, we’ve got politics and we’ve got the president of the United States — ish.
We don’t actually have Barack Obama on the show, but we do have the Texas country artist who appeared on last week’s televised presidential town hall about race and policing. Coffey Anderson is this week’s featured Texan for our Ask A Texan segment, and you might recognize him from a viral video he produced this month called “What to do when you get pulled over.”
In our second-ever installment of our new game show, Stump-A-Ferner, quizmaster and Observer staffer Patrick Michels will see whether a native Dallasite can beat the Observer’s own brilliant environmental reporter, Naveena Sadasivam, at Texas trivia.
And finally, in our Strangest State segment, Patrick will be back to fill us in on the weirdest goings-on from far-flung Texas, where small-town newspapers are going poke-crazy for Pokemon Go stories.
