Audie Cornish, host of NPR's All Things Considered, joined TPR and our guests on Wednesday, June 15, at NOAH’s Event Center for TPR's annual Pinnacle Dinner. Cornish spoke about her experiences as a solo reporter, and then what she’s learned as a host at NPR. Cornish took time to look ahead to the future of NPR and how the network and its member stations can best inform and engage all of America. As you can see, she got the audience talking online!

Friends of Texas Public Radio, join us and Walt Disney Studios at 7 p.m. on Tuesday, June 14 at the Santikos Palladium for a free preview screening of the new family film "Finding Dory." The film is a sequel to Disney/Pixar's beloved animated film "Finding Nemo," released in 2003. The film is rated PG.

What does it take to survive in the face of adversity? What about sickness? A major disaster? Why do some people seem ‘stronger’ than others? At TPR’s Think Science: Human Resilience, on May 27, the audience heard stories about people who have been through traumatic events, and a local researcher offered his own perspective on what makes it possible for humans to bounce back.

"Resiliency comes from hope." --Dr. Marian Sokol

 

Texas Public Radio held its sixth consecutive Silver Solutions event on Thursday, May 19 at TriPoint. This free resource event offered seniors, their families, and caregivers an opportunity to meet with over 60 local businesses, organizations, and heath care experts that shared information on ways to optimize senior health, well-being, and the ability to enjoy life and live independently.

During its first season, the NPR show Invisibilia showed us how science sheds light on what we individually experience; the second season will delve more often into how our lives are entwined, sometimes invisibly, with each other and the larger world. Ready for a preview? Give a listen to the audio below, but remember also to save the date for Thursday, June 16, at 8 p.m. That night, we're hosting a free listening party at Geekdom. Enjoy beer and light refreshments as we circle the chairs, turn up the volume, and blow some minds. (Too over-the-top? Try us.)
