Marfa, Texas teens capture the appeal of their uniquely hip ‘small town’

KRTS Youth Media | Marfa, TX

What is it like to grow up in a place that has been described as both “a small West Texas town in the middle of nowhere” and “a hipster destination hotspot”? Teens from Marfa, Texas set out to capture the sounds and stories that make their home town so unique.

Listen to their insider stories that range from a family haunting to interviews with tourists from around the world, to a personal account of what Texans are doing to endure the record-breaking drought plaguing their local economy. This Student Reporting Lab is a partnership with KRTS Youth Media.
