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.

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.  

Ryan quit his dream job.  Then he quit a few that weren't dreams, but were pretty good.  

In this story he explores the many positions he has held the past few years, why he keeps jumping, and how he may stay put at the current one.

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

Kiran Bains finds out that a Ugandan National Park is the wrong place to get lost after dark.

The young peace builder working in Gulu takes off for an adventure with Lam and Sam, great friends helping her celebrate a birthday.

But unforeseen complications along the way mean that the three are stranded with the sun down in a place where elephants, hyenas, and hippopotamuses amble by semi-regularly. It's dangerous, dark, and no help is in sight.
