A Closer Look at the Texas Primary Ballot on This Week's The Austin Chronicle Show

Plus: Previewing sci-fi film fest Other Worlds

Not so long ago, talk of Texas turning blue would have been shrugged off as pure fantasy. Not so anymore.

This week on our KOOP FM radio show, Michael King joins me to run through the primary races to represent Texas in the U.S. Senate and House of Representatives, and to discuss if Texas truly is "in play."

In the second half of the program, we skip genres from once-upon-a-time fantasy to science-fiction as Screens editor Richard Whittaker stops by to preview this weekend's Other Worlds Film Fest.

Host: Kim Jones. Guest: Michael King, Richard Whittaker. Engineer: Bob Dailey. Theme music: Kevin Curtin and Jonas Wilson.

Catch The Austin Chronicle Show live Fridays, 3pm, on KOOP 91.7 FM.
