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.

Professor Henry Flores is the guy you go to when you want the numbers to line up. Reporters, former reporters, political communication folks, and pundits call him to explain polling data, to figure out why Texas' congressional districts look like a kindergarten class's attempt at creating a puzzle.

Unlike you and I, Sergeant John Mahon is lied to by professional liars. He has worked for the Bexar County Sheriff's department for 23 years. And while you and I are lied to by advertisements and dressing rooms with soft lighting and mirrors that obviously make us look thinner, he is lied to by murderers.

Tracie Mendoza was born In San Antonio and managed to get back here after being raised in one of those other Texas cities. She works for VentureLab here in San Antonio. She used to do stand-up but before that, before semi-celebrity as a Mariachi performer, before being paid $1 per for impromptu songs as a child, before it all, it was Mr. Microphone.

The transfixing gift would forever change the young girl's life.

Elena and some friends go to the mall in the big city of Dallas. When all their phones die, and they still need to navigate home, the 17 year-old thinks 'I got this.'

She didn't have it. She didn't have anywhere near it.
