Think is heading to Austin to help kick off the Texas Tribune Festival. On Sept. 21, we’ll broadcast from the studios of KUT — talking first with Shetal Vohra-Gupta and Naomi Reed of UT’s Institute of Urban Policy Research and Analysis about what free speech on campus really means. Then we’ll talk about how President Trump is reshaping the office with H.W. Brands, the Jack S. Blanton Sr. Chair in History at UT.
Then on Sept. 22, it’s your turn to sit in on our shows. We’ll kick things off at noon with a broadcast of Anything You Ever Wanted to Know hosted by Jeff Whittington live at the Texas Union Theater on the UT campus. Jeff’s guest will be David Courtney, who writes “The Texanist” for Texas Monthly. And at 1, Krys Boyd talks about covering the White House and how journalism shapes political discourse with Charlie Pierce of Esquire, Abby Livingston of the Texas Tribune and UT political scientist Eric McDaniel.
On Saturday, Sept. 23, Krys Boyd talks with U. Renee Hall, the new Dallas Police Chief, at Calhoun Hall, Classroom 100 on UT’s campus.
The shows are free and open to the public, so stop by, say hi and join in the conversation.
