A Racial Reckoning Comes to Town

In the summer of 2020, TPR asked listeners to share their stories about race and racism in San Antonio in a live virtual storytelling event. The city had experienced the wave of civil unrest that swept the country that summer following the killing of George Floyd by police. In the wake of that national spotlight on racial inequality, storytellers shared a wide range of experiences with racism, ranging from formative childhood moments to subtle encounters at the bar. Five of those stories are collected in this episode of the Worth Repeating podcast.

The New Normal

Shortly after the pandemic started, we asked our listeners to send us stories about adjusting to the "new normal," and they told us about everything from upheaval inside a restaurant to a pandemic honeymoon. This episode of the Worth Repeating podcast features four of those stories, a sort of time capsule from the fevered early months of quarantine.

Following Heather's story in this episode of the podcast are three other stories from the archive.
