Go inside the most expensive, most talked-about political race of 2018: the U.S. Senate contest between Congressman Beto O’Rourke and Senator Ted Cruz. For a generation, Texas has been America’s ultimate red state. No Democrat has won statewide office here since 1994. Will this be the race where everything changes? Or will Beto-mania turn out to be just another fantasy? For the next month, Texas Monthly, chronicler of life in contemporary Texas since 1974, and Pineapple Street Media, creator of Missing Richard Simmons, will be traveling around the state of Texas, reporting in real time. We’ll go behind the scenes with the O’Rourke campaign, take the pulse of operatives and analysts and pollsters, and talk with the Texas voters of all political stripes who will ultimately decide which candidate and whose vision for the state will prevail.

Customer Reviews

Great job!

I understand everyone needs some R&R but keep this going! AND let's start talking to all the other candidates that won or almost won - so nice to get some personal insight on others even if I can't vote for them! Can't get enough PODS!

Highly informative

Very interesting on the ground analysis as well as history. Beto lost from baby boomers!!!

Episode 3 eye opening

Great podcast with a unique perspective. I am a fan of the soundbites and transitions. Episode 3 really hit home for me, because I live in the RGV. I could’ve easily felt offended and pointed out that you interviewed the “just get by” college students. But in all sincerity this is the reality here in the Valley. Thank you for shedding light and exposing the lack of interest and conformity we live in down here.
