Zeugma Episode 3: “Keeping Austin Weird”

421681398_60f9431c7f_zThe latest in the University of Texas’ Digital Writing and Research Lab Rhet/Tech podcast series, Zuegma, is now available for listening and download! Episode 3 of our current season is titled “Keeping Austin Weird,” and is the first podcast that I have produced myself.

Since its founding in the late 1830s, our home city of Austin, Texas, has been known by various names–Bat City, the City of the Violet Crown, and the Live Music Capital of the World, to name just a few. In this episode, the Zeugma team explores the history of Austin’s nicknames and some of the ways that the city has transformed itself into a hub of tourist and musical activity. We also hear from a few Austinites who question whether or not the city is living up to its reputation for “weirdness.”

Listen and download on the Zuegma website, or via iTunes or LibSyn.
