Griner Pleads Guilty and Preserves Karankawa Culture (July 8, 2022) – Houston Public Media
On Friday’s show: Houston native Brittney Griner pleaded guilty to drug charges as her trial continued Thursday in a Russian court. The WNBA star admitted to bringing cannabis into the country, but said she packed in a hurry and had no intention of breaking the law. We get the latest information on his case.
Also this time: For centuries, the Karankawa people ruled what is now Houston and much of the Texas coast. A common misconception has been that they are now extinct. But that’s not exactly the case. We learn what really happened to the Karankawa, their culture and the efforts to preserve their language.
Then we break down the good, bad and ugly of the week, including a difference between what many Texans think about gun control measures and what others think Texans think about this question. And we reflect on an incident at a San Antonio Taco Cabana that some compare to the Disney movie Ratatouille.
And we visit the Alief Art House and learn how artist Matt Manalo is making art more accessible to the Alief community.
Audio for today’s show will be available after 11 a.m. CT. We also offer a free podcast here, on iTunes, Stitcher, and other apps.local
