The Rangers have yet to play a game at their brand new Globe Life Field in Arlington, but one of its parking lots was filled with thousands of cars this morning. They were part of a massive grocery giveaway from the Tarrant Area Food Bank.
After weeks of political posturing between state Republicans and Houston Mayor Sylvester Turner, the mayor on Wednesday said he’s canceling the Texas Republican Party’s in-person convention, an event that was scheduled to be held at downtown Houston’s George R. Brown Convention Center beginning on July 16.
The 50-seat theater is staying connected with their audience by presenting past productions on their YouTube channel.
Ian Bogost, contributing writer at The Atlantic and the Ivan Allen College Distinguished Chair in Media Studies at the Georgia Institute of Technology, joins us to talk about ditching the urban core for peace — and distance.
