We’re proud to introduce our first weekly podcast, the Texas Miracle. In the launch episode, “Inarticulate Conception,” we’ll round up the biggest Texas news stories with two of Texas’ best young journalists, and we’ll talk to Observer staffer Patrick Michels about the dangers of using meth and Facebook at the same time. Then, we’ll get a first-hand look at the hassle that transgender Texans have to go through to get their identification documents in order. Later, we’ll meet one of conservative Twitter’s most confounding — and, to many of us, creepiest — personalities. We’ll close out the show by talking to one of the biggest names in Texas food to get an answer, once and for all, to that burning question: Why don’t Texans put beans in chili?

[Editor’s note: There is adult language in this podcast! You can find the Texas Miracle on iTunes and Stitcher. Follow us at @TheTexasMiracle and here on the website for news and updates. Got a question for A Texan? Email us at [email protected] or leave us a voicemail at 512-981-5936!]

Do you think free access to journalism like this is important?
The Texas Observer depends on support from its members to keep telling stories like the one you are reading now. This fall we're looking for 200 more sustaining members—people like you who can give us as little as $0.99 per month. Your membership means we can continue shedding light on issues that might otherwise go unreported. Can we count on you?
