West Texas Talk — Marfa Public Radio’s flagship program — made its debut when the station launched and is now a repository of hundreds of local profiles.
The show is hosted by Diana Nguyen and other contributors. The program is also produced by Diana Nguyen.
In May 2019, West Texas Talk transitioned from a thirty-minute program into an hour-long show.
The first half of the program features discussions about regional issues and topics with residents and experts. Whether looking at immigration on the border, delving into West Texas history, or having conversations about the Big Bend’s changing towns — we hope to explore the topics that matter most to residents of West Texas.
The second half of the show celebrates the creative spirit of Far West Texas and features conversations with writers, musicians, filmmakers, and artists who both live here and pass through the region.
We invite you to join in on the conversation by telling us who you think we should interview and the issues you would like to hear about by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
