The Idea Behind the Show Is Right Here: 

San Antonio is a city of stories.

Texas Public Radio launched Worth Repeating to find and share these stories. In 2018, San Antonio will celebrate its 300th anniversary and unlike its contemporaries Chicago, New Orleans, Boston, and New York, this city's stories are largely unknown. TPR wants to help change that by getting its residents to tell their stories and recognize how important they are even if they don't read like a movie script.

During our season once a month, 7 storytellers will have 7 minutes to tell a true story from their life around a common theme.

Think This American Life or The Moth, but sourced from your friends and neighbors. Public Radio tries daily to educate San Antonio about the world, now we want San Antonio to tell us about itself and its people.

October's show is sponsored by niche

Beatrice Briseño is Texas born and bred. She came of age in a time of overt racism towards Mexican Americans. And despite her own successes, it's something that she has never forgotten. 

Linsey Lindberg is a small business owner, a woman, and she can rip a phone book in half. She is literally a strong woman, like from the circus. So how does someone go from being an office drone to a circus attraction? Listen below and find out.

Chaplain Rafael Lantigua is a Captain in the U.S. Air Force. He's an Army brat so he grew up with the military.

Sheila Black is head of Gemini Ink, so she knows a thing or two about telling a story. In this story she tells us about becoming a mom. 

Neel Lane worked across the street from Travis Park for decades, and the monument to the Confederate dead had rarely crossed his mind. That changed after a journey of reconciliation to Ghana with his church.
