Best Texas Newscast
Texas Standard is the best thing on podcast or radio for Texas news.
Great Texas News Source
Great source for news about Texas. Well done. Could be awesome with two tweaks:
1) Put show notes. A list of topics and stories for that particular show. Helps to know what the stories are.
2) Put chapters; or break the podcast/show into smaller bites. Chapters allows one to skip stories more easily. Separate podcasts for each story (as for the Texas Matters podcast) would also help this issue. One large podcast without breaks is the way of the past.
