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

Monique Manuel is Cajun and so was her grandmother. Her grandmother spoke French and was a stoic unless at a funeral. 

Amanda Reyna was lied to her whole life. A bottle of liquid paper impacted the trajectory of her life in ways we can never know. 

Mice, the midwest, and a murderous cat, these are just a few of the highlights of one of the funniest stories ever told at Worth Repeating.

Elizabeth Fauerso takes us back in time to small town Iowa, where as a sixth grader she took on tried to apply the scientific method to Transcendental Meditation and its philosophy...but with mice.

Rex Hausmann is San Antonio born and bred. He is an artist and runs Hausmann Millworks Creative Community, a space for artist studios and offices.

When in Graduate School, Rex suffered a trauma that changed his life forever. 

He recounted the painful story on the Worth Repeating stage.

This story was told at the September 5, 2017 live Worth Repeating. This event was held at Brick at the Blue Star Art Complex

For nearly two decades, Hunter Waite was a pioneer. Every week he reviewed data from a place only he and his colleagues had ever been in human history. 

Hunter is a principal investigator on the Cassini Mission which will explore Saturn until next week, when they crash it into the surface of the planet.

Along the way his tool --which is a sort of solar system sniffer -- helped discover many things. Saturn's moon Titan has 100x more oil, coal, and gas reserves than Earth and Enceadalus has underwater volcanoes that create the right conditions for life.
