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. 

To submit your story, or to rat out a friend you think would be great click here and send us an email.

It isn't that Bernadette Smyth's mom didn't love her and her 8 brothers and sisters. It's just that her cavalier, some might argue distant, attitude flies in the face of how we think of mothers.

Bernadette assures us it isn't just the fact that she grew up in Ireland, her mother was something of a standout even there. While it may have been tough on Bernie, it is great fun for an audience.

Florinda Flores-Brown is a writer and educator from Laredo. Florinda attended UT Austin, which is where this angsty and hilarious story of lust and obsession took place.

The unattainable object of young Florinda's affections flipped the script, but she never knew due to what she called "an ESL moment."


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.
