HearSA


HearSA is an online audio archive of public programming intended to foster discussion and enhance awareness of exciting and informative local presentations and events. The HearSA archive includes lectures, panel discussions, book readings, and much more. Texas Public Radio partners with local organizations to bring a second life online to the most interesting talks in town. Content from HearSA may be selected by Texas Public Radio for broadcast or on-air commentary, providing further exposure for archived program material.

HearSA is presented by Texas Public Radio in association with its local partners. It is important to recognize that the opinions presented in these programs are those of the author or presenter, not Texas Public Radio or any of its stations, and are not necessarily endorsed by TPR.

Removing one Cedar tree from your property can keep 40 gallons of water in the ground per day; that's 14,600 gallons per year of a resource that is becoming less and less available as much of the state continues to be in drought conditions.  This statistic was read off by Dr. Tom Arsuffi at the March 8th meeting of the Texas Water Symposium entitled Texas Springs: Making Connections between Groundwater, Surface Water, Science and Stewardship at the Llano Field Campus of Texas Tech University in Junction, Texas. 

Richard Fisher, head of the Dallas Federal Reserve Bank, heaped praise on his friend and former colleague Dick Evans at the World Affairs Council International Citizen of the Year Award Dinner.

When he wasn't cracking jokes about the lack of leadership in Washington D.C., he was suggesting some guiding principles for how to get the U.S. economy to pick up speed.

CEO of Frost Bank, Dick Evans, is honored by the World Affairs Council of San Antonio as the International Citizen of the Year.  You can hear that presentation below.

Contemporary Art is both a maligned and lauded movement. For the average person, it is taxing to try and meet an artist halfway in a piece of art that is designed to be as much a dialogue as an expression.  

Dr. Andrew Cambell, who teaches art at Texas State University in San Marcos,  isn't put off by Morley Safer and wants to demystify the form.  Touching on authorship and appropriation, materials, identity, and how his own work fits into the mix, he lays out a series of understandable explanations that will have you wanting to engage with your next contemporary art exhibit.

Jane Madrigal

Laura Rios performs a traditional Matachin song at the closing of Jane Madrigal's exhibit, Journey to the Underworld and Other Forbidden Places before the End of Time, which was on display at Bihl Haus Arts from November 2012 through January 2013.

The installation featured a temple to Coyolxauhqui, goddess of the moon, and artworks dedicated to other indigenous feminine deities revered before the conquest.  These works honor the ancient belief that held sacred the feminine principle and equated it with spiritual power and reverence.

The World Affairs Council began the new year by welcoming Director General Daniel T.C. Liao to speak at their January 10th event. As the current Director General of the Taipei Economic and Cultural Office in Houston, Mr. Liao spoke about Taiwan's current role in the global community.
