West Texas Wonders

West Texas Wonders is a journalism initiative from Marfa Public Radio that invites you to take part in the stories we cover. It’s guided by you, our listeners, and your curiosity about our region – from the border to the Basin.

In the first year of the program, our goal was to increase engagement from across our wide range and find out what you're curious about. For our second year, we’re folding your participation into our regular reporting.

That's why we're asking you about your experience during the coronavirus pandemic, and the questions you have about the regional response to the crisis.

Our reporters also want your input on the topics we routinely cover -- border and immigration policies, rural community issues, and life amid the oil and gas industry in the Permian Basin.

Have a question that doesn’t fit into one of our beats? Don’t worry! You can still submit your general wonders at the bottom of this page.
