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

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. 

Former KERA staffer Krystina Martinez was an assistant producer. She produced local content for Morning Edition and She also produced The Friday Conversation, a weekly series of conversations with North Texas newsmakers. Krystina was also the backup newscaster for the Texas Standard.
