On today's episode, Antoinette and Lucas check in with each other two weeks before the election. We talk early voting, the energy in Texas, and what voters need to do to flip the state.
We also call attention to two recent election-related interviews: our conversation with Rebecca Bell-Metereau, the Democratic candidate for Texas State Board of Education, District 5, and our talk with Mathew Ruberg, DigiDem for the Wendy Davis campaign, who offers essential info on relational organizing in #TX21. Check them out! The time to get involved with both of these campaigns is now.
We also wrap up our conversation on our current OTW Book Club selection, Lies My Teacher Told Me, by James Loewen, and introduce our next choice: Good Citizens: Creating Enlightened Society, by Thich Nhat Hanh. Our hate-read of the week: this Washington Post column, which sent Lucas into a seething frenzy.
