KLRU was pleased to host the first ever live taping of the Texas Tribune’s weekly Tribcast in our studios on Tuesday evening, September 14th. Over 125 friends and fans of public media and Texas politics participated in the event which included a pre taping reception and a Q&A session after the podcast. Evan Smith, Elise Hu, Ben Philpott, and Ross Ramsey entertained and enlightened the audience with their conversation about the upcoming elections, the gubernatorial debates, and the budget woes of the state. Although some points of discussion seemed fairly dismal – as politics can often seem – the audience and the panelists truly seemed to enjoy this new shared experience, bringing together KLRU and the Texas Tribune to educate and engage our community.
