Special Series: Back To Work

KRTS/ Marfa Public Radio, in conjunction with Workforce Solutions Upper Rio Grande, has produced the series Back To Work, a look at the economies of the Trans-Pecos area of West Texas.   The Back To Work series is funded in part by the Corporation for Public Broadcasting and Marfa National Bank. In this special Back To Work area you will find podcasts for the special series of four Talk at Ten broadcasts we have done, each of which combine field recordings throughout Presidio, Jeff Davis, Brewster and Hudspeth counties, with live interview.   All Talk at Ten broadcasts are hosted by KRTS’ General Manager, Tom Michael.  This site will also include podcasts for each interview conducted in the field by our Project Manager, Karen Bernstein.  Interviews and Talk At Ten podcasts are grouped thematically: jobs/ jobseekers, business, Redford/ Presidio case studies. The Back To Work area (B2W) has regularly updated content to keep you informed on matters of the national and local economies relevant to our story topics or interviews, including an area devoted to articles and media as well as a discussion forum.  We also have links to a number of statewide organizations and agencies that can help job seekers and businesses get back to work! Join us and participate.
