Listen In, Lubbock: Making sense of the 2021 Texas blackout
Millions of Texans were cold and in the dark for days in February 2021, when an intense winter storm swept across the state. The disaster revealed an ill-prepared power grid and a complicated bureaucracy that impacts anyone who relies on the Texas power system.
That’s the topic of The Texas Newsroom podcast “The Disconnect: Power, Politics and the Texas Blackout.” KUT’s Mose Buchele is the host of that podcast. He covers energy and the environment at Austin’s NPR station. "The Disconnect" is now available wherever you get your podcasts.
