From The Newsroom: Mental Health And Political Campaigns; Bike Commuting In North Texas

May 16, 2014

In today’s All Things Considered local block from the KERA Newsroom:

Three decades ago, Republican Dan Patrick spent time in a psychiatric hospital, but should that matter? Shelley Kofler checks in with Patrick supporters and talks to a legislator battling bipolar disorder.

Also, Doualy Xaykaothao talks to some immigrants about the coal mining disaster in Turkey, and North Texans hit the road for National Bike to Work Day.

 

You can listen to the segment weekdays at 8:20 a.m. and 6:20 p.m. on KERA 90.1 FM.
