Though it may seem like a short reprieve from Texas being in the headlines, the budget looms on the horizon. Scott sits down with Every Texan's senior fiscal analyst, Dick Lavine, to hear what he is keeping an eye on ahead of the May 7th election. Later in the program Bee Moorhead shares a response to the conversation with Dick and, of course, gives us a little homework. On Josh's Weekly Watchlist the guys discuss a bit of UT women's basketball and a small history lesson from his recreational reading during this slight legislative lull. Our Weekly Word is brought to us by Rabbi Neil Blumofe, Senior Rabbi of Congregation Agudas Achim in Austin.
