Expanding beyond the three-and-a-half  minute news piece you've heard on KWBU,  we share more of the interviews that didn't make it into the story, but is still interesting and relevant to the topic.  Behind the Story begins airing weekly on August 7th, 2015 in it's regular time slot of 11:30am Friday.

Welcome to Behind the Story – a program where we take you straight to the source. In the City of West, community members are opening a long-awaited museum that focuses on the history of the town. I sat down with the Georgia Hutyra, president of the museum’s board. We talk about the town’s rich Czech and German history and the difficulties and unity spurred by the fertilizer plant explosion in 2013.

Welcome to Behind the Story, a program where we take you straight to the source. Recently we aired a story about the research done at the Mind-Body Research Lab at Baylor University, where professor Gary Elkins has been using clinical hypnosis to help postmenopausal women ease the severity of hot flashes and difficulty sleeping. After that story, we'll hear more from Elkins and the work he's doing.

Last week we aired a story about the Support and Empowerment program at McLennan Community College. The program helps single parents navigate through their educational journey, offering parenting workshops, one-on-one talks and general assistance. After that, we'll hear more from the program's coordinator and two single mothers who were interviewed for the story. 

This week Texas State Technical College turned 50 years old. KWBU's Carlos Morales talked with TSTC's Chancellor and CEO Mike Reeser on the historic event, what the future holds for the college, and what are its biggest challenges. In the second half of this program, we'll hear from Scott Neal, who will talk to us about the first-ever Waco Ribfest, which is bringing in several vendors from out of state.
