The top stories this afternoon from KERA News: A dangerous synthetic drug easily available on the Internet has surfaced in North Texas.  At least two people were hospitalized after using U-47700 at a recent party. One of them is in ICU. Other cases across the country have led to deaths.

Live theater has rarely dealt with the digital world the way many sci-fi movies do. This weekend though, Stage West presents the Texas premiere of ‘The Nether’ by Houston-born playwright Jennifer Haley. 

You can hear North Texas stories weekdays at 8:20 a.m. and 6:20 p.m. on KERA 90.1 FM.
