Austin's KUT News, at 90.5 on your FM dial or online, marked two years of recapping our fact checks this week.

The Q&A segments, usually hosted by the station's news director, Emily Donahue, give us a chance to walk through a recent Truth-O-Meter project including, of course, the rating given to the statement we scrutinized.

In the latest segment, we revisited our look at Gov. Rick Perry's salute to Sam Houston's principles; the Republican governor's history lesson came out Half True.

See that full fact check to the right--or click to the KUT News interview here.

Donahue closed out our second-anniversary interview by asking if we brought a cake to celebrate.

Kind of: Outside the studio, we cut up home-baked Lovey Dovey walnut brownies, courtesy of a recipe passed to us years ago by reader-listener Susan Williamson. We'd be happy to pass the recipe to you too.

What else?
