Description

Millions of Texans have been without power or potable water for days following unusually harsh winter weather. The Republican governor blamed the outages on renewable energy but that is only 10 percent of the story.

Plus, we look at "cancel culture." Where did it come from, and why are conservatives eager to use it as a political cudgel?

This episode: congressional correspondent Susan Davis, White House reporter Ayesha Rascoe, business reporter Camila Domonoske, KUT's Ashley Lopez, and political reporter Danielle Kurtzleben.

Also, My heart goes out to those people suffering in Texas. One hours that their energy companies and people in influential positions will learn from this disaster to help prevent a similar event in the future. Also, I'm sick to death of "cancel culture" and fervently wish that it would get cancelled.
