    The Ticket: How 2016 Affects 2018

    The Ticket: How 2016 Affects 2018

    This week, the polls have gotten so close that it looks like the assumed Clinton victory is more of a toss-up. So the Texas Tribune's Jay Root and KUT's Ben Philpott will talk about where the race stands now and evolution and effect of polls in the 2016 election with Republican pollster Chris Perkins.
    And because we're based here in Texas, we'll talk about how the national race could-might-maybe-possibly affect politics in the lone star state with Texas Tribune CEO and noted New York Yankees fan Evan Smith.

    The Ticket: Explaining Why the Polls Aren't Rigged

    This week, The Texas Tribune's Jay Root and KUT's Ben Philpott tackle some of Donald Trump's assertions that the polls showing him behind…are wrong. They'll talk with political researcher and pollster Stefan Hankin to break down the possibility of a bad polling year.

    The Ticket LIVE: Let’s End the 2016 Election with a Little Humor

    The Ticket LIVE: Let’s End the 2016 Election with a Little Humor

    This week, the Tribune's Jay Root and KUT's Ben Philpott taped before a crowd at KLRU's historic studio 6A, former host of the iconic TV show Austin City Limits.
    While the crowd was waiting on the 3rd Presidential debate, we want to go beyond the debate and even the election to talk about the future of the Republican and Democratic parties in Texas. So we'll talk with Burt Orange Report Publisher Lize Burr and Deirdre Delisi of Delisi Communications about what happens next after this brawl of a campaign.
    And because we know some people have been a little stressed out by this election, we've invited some local comedians to lighten the mood with some debate humor.

A Podcast for Texans

Finally, a political podcast that understands Texas politics. Thoughtful interviews that address issues rather than personalities. It is Does not consist of ranting and interrupting each other, rather respectful disagreement on issues. Thank you for presenting Texas political issues rather than presenting Texas politics as a freak show. We do have thinking politicians in Texas, even if they are difficult to find.

A must have podcast!

I'm a college at usher in Boston who's never even been to Texas, but this has quickly become one of my favorite podcasts. If you're interested in this presidential race, you need to listen to this!
