Hosted by Texas Tribune's Alexa Ura and featuring a rotating cast of Tribune reporters, editors and special guests, the TribCast is an informal – and, with luck, amusing – discussion of Texas politics and policy. New episodes post each week.

Love the Tribune
God Bless Texas Tribune
I miss Emily and the old crew that regularly took part in the podcast. The new hosts don't have the same wit and knowledge of Texas politics that the original participants did. It's a shame, but people move on to bigger things.
Extremely palatable reporting on local and state issues!!
This podcast is listenable and highly compelling for young voters and old in Texas (and out-of-state Texans), which is a feat for a podcast that explores granular details of Texas politics at the district, city, and state level. Support the Tribune making more edcuated local voters!!
