We love Texas. We love talking about Texas. After six and half years of exploring the history and culture of the Lone Star state, we three Texans are ready to take a break.

Before we begin… What’s your favorite place that you’ve ever taken a nap in Texas?

  • The Texas Standard—You can also catch it on your local NPR station (in Texas).
  • Wicked Game—Explore all 58 presidential elections to discover if there ever was a “good ol’ days,” or if presidential politics have always been played dirty.
  • Wise About Texas—Justice Ken Wise has studied Texas history since his youth and has a tremendous passion for the stories and values that built Texas.
