Superb

Let’s get macro with the politics and see what’s what in Texas’s many political arenas — which are some of the most fascinating on the country. Nakhaima does a super job of combining a relaxed style, consummate preparedness and thorough digging, all of which are related to listeners in that great radio voice of his. Really good stuff.
