This week on The Austin Chronicle Show, we tackle some tough questions: What the heck is Central Health and what does it have to do with me? And how long before Austin's boom makes us even less affordable than San Francisco?
News Editor Mike Clark-Madison handles the first topic, Central Health, and its $291 million plan to provide health care for underserved Travis County residents. Then reporter Roxy Bonafont expands on her cover story about SASS salad dressing company and how Austin's real estate boom almost put them out of business. Note: The show runs a little short this week due to KOOP's fall membership drive, which is going on now through Sept. 15.
For copyright reasons, we had to strip out our exit music for the online rebroadcast, but if you want to get the full effect, you can find the song below. It's "Howdy High-Rise," the title track off the new Croy & the Boys album. Doug Freeman interviewed frontman Corey Baum in this week's issue, and the album's thematic refrain of anxiety over getting priced out of Austin felt like a fitting end to this particular episode.
Host: Kim Jones. Guests: Mike Clark-Madison, Roxy Bonafont. Engineer: Evan Hearn. Theme music: Kevin Curtin and Jonas Wilson.
Catch The Austin Chronicle Show live Fridays, 3pm, on KOOP 91.7 FM.
