The Texas Miracle #12: Whose Lives Matter?
This week on the podcast: In the wake of official responses to the Dallas attacks on police, whose lives really matter?
And we’ll also get to the business of our sort-of-usual frivolity. In the Miracle’s new Stump-A-Fer’ner segment, we’ll see if a Belgian can beat a Texan at her own Texas trivia game, and go out to the Texas tiki shed for our news roundup. Dallas Morning News writers Bobby Blanchard and Lauren McGaughy, and Austin freelance writer Paula Forbes will discuss campus carry, Browser the library cat and some behind-the-scenes attempts to change Texas abortion regulations in the wake of the landmark U.S. Supreme Court decision in Whole Woman’s v. Hellerstedt.
And because we never miss an opportunity to Ask A Texan, we’ve tapped Central Texas librarian Allison Steger for her recommendations of the best Texas books to read with your kids — or on your own, we won’t judge you. Promise.
