Texas Take: The Podcast
About This Show
The Lone Star State’s politicians are outspoken, colorful, humorous and sometimes off-beat characters who exemplify the historical Bigger Than Life view that Texas has of itself, whether in Austin or on the national stage. That ensures that Texas politics is seldom boring, often amusing and never lacking in colorful intrigue and drama. The Houston Chronicle’s Austin Bureau covers all the action, from smoke-filled room to raucous filibuster, and each week we go behind the headlines for an insider’s skinny on what’s really going beneath the storied Pink Dome. Informative, relevant, entertaining and occasionally surprising. Direct from Austin, this is the “Texas Take.”
