The Lone Star Plate meets Factual America for the second time! We are wrapping up Season 3 of our show, and our sister podcast Factual America, which explores what makes America unique through the lens of documentary filmmaking, has just closed Season 2.    

Two fellow Texans, Matthew Sherwood and I, discuss the highlights of the last season, and what episodes, guests and topics left a particular impression on us. Each of us chose three episodes to talk about and to recommend to our audience to revisit.    

This is by no means a top list! We mention many episodes that we enjoyed during the last season, and we were surprised ourselves by the number of amazing people we met on our shows.   

At the end of the episode, you also get to meet our teams, the people who help all of this happen every week.   

And we’re announcing the launch of The Lone Star Plate Season 4 with a big live event in Austin on September 15th!
