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.

Hills Snyder is a San Antonio artist and writer.  In this tale, he takes us back in time...first 30 years, then 10 more. He goes back to Austin and then to Southeast Asia. A chance encounter with another artist leads to this fragmented and visceral narrative.

Jonathan Berman is a medical researcher for UT Health San Antonio. He studies kidneys, how they work and their role in hypertension. He likes his work and is generally happy to focus on it, but in late 2016 something was bothering him. He saw that science was being derided, ignored and taking a backseat to politics. That pissed him off. 

Hear how the March for Science got its start on a couch at a cult compound outside San Antonio.

Eric takes us to the basketball court, and how a new breed of player was rankling him and his fellow teammates. He was out to prove that old-school fundamentals trumped tricks... but how far was he willing to go to prove his point?
