New From Texas Monthly: America’s Girls
The original Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders squad burst onto the field back in 1972—the same year Title IX passed, the same year Deep Throat came out, and a year before Roe v. Wade. Sarah Hepola digs into the untold stories behind the global pop culture phenomenon, from the stripper who allegedly inspired the squad’s creation, to a scandalous Playboy cover shoot that was partly a battle over fair wages, to the ongoing debate about sexuality and women’s bodies in a post-#MeToo world. The result is a vibrant mix of history, cultural criticism, and storytelling, featuring interviews with New Yorker writer Jia Tolentino, award-winning novelist Ben Fountain, Oscar-nominated director Dana Adam Shapiro, local television sports legend Dale Hansen, folk-writing hero Joe Nick Patoski, and a whole bunch of cheerleaders whose names you don’t know yet—but should.

The World is Changin’, boys
As a transplanted Texan of 75 years, I was delighted to discover this podcast. It was hilarious to read the reviews by my fellow Texans who are socially and educationally locked in Texas of the 1950s. It wasn’t all that great then, guys, and it sure ain’t gonna stay like you wish it...oh, btw, the South won’t rise again, either. Texas is outgrowing y’all.
When the expert they interviewed about tacos claimed Mexican food was mostly vegetarian I almost choked on my carnitas! Ok the guy has a clearly liberal agenda but it’s about tacos. So I give it 3 stars but I can’t listen after the 4 min mark….the taco expert is not Texan.
Thank You Texas Monthly!
I’m amused by all the posts about the liberal this & the Democrat that…. If you want conservative mosey over to Alex Jones and InfoWars. If you want intelligent content - you can count on TM! Or, remain obtuse.
