Stories, interviews and more from Hillcrest High School broadcast students.
Fernando Tatis, Jr.'s haul, love for Matt Ryan, concern for Russell Wilson, NBA MVP predictions, and we see you, Gary Sanchez.
Lone Star Freeze
Winter has hit Texas hard, so Chloe Sutherland talked to two teens and a teacher for their first-hand accounts. Then Becky Gardner reports from the streets of a cold, snowy Springfield, where she met up with a tow truck driver and an emergency responder, who both share some winter wisdom.
A Super Bowl wrap-up, the Arenado trade, the Bauer signing, and an NBAer who needs to be traded.
Patrick Mahomes: Instant Replay
In honor of Patrick Mahomes leading the Chiefs to another Super Bowl, we flash back a couple of years to an interview with Matt Derrick, biographer of the record-setting quarterback. Matt is also one of the founders of HTV, so expect some Hillcrest memories first, then the story of the one of the NFL's premiere players. Story by Colby Bogle.
A classic "takedown" of Luke, plus Super Bowl predictions, NBA updates, trade talks, and thoughts on the universal DH.
Stand Up and Stay Up
The topic was the 1906 lynching of three black men on the Springfield square, and the exodus of the town's thriving black community that immediately followed. But guest Wes Pratt, Chief Diversity Officer at MSU, and reporter Jaela Burris ended up discussing a wide range of race-related topics, like growing up black in a town that never has completely recovered from that lynching. A source cited in this podcast is "Many Thousand Gone," about Springfield's lost black history due to the hangings in 1906, written by the late Dr. Katherine Lederer.

Great New Podcast!
I love that you’re giving voice to high school students through podcast. HTV has a longstanding tradition of producing stories that might not otherwise be shared given the unique perspective and access of teenagers. I am excited to hear more as you use this new medium to explore content “by teens, for teens”!
This feels more like a lesson or PSA than a Podcast
High quality reporting from HTV
Very good to see HTV available in this very portable format. Look to see more great reporting from the students at Hillcrest High School telling their stories.
