This week on the Daytripper Podcast we talk about Texas Movies, as in movies filmed (or a portion of) in Texas. We list our favorites and even debate some that may or may not qualify. There are probably even a few surprises in here as well!
Speaking of Texas movies, join us for the next installment of the Daytripper Film Fest with a showing of True Grit (2010) at the Georgetown Palace Theater. More information and tickets are available at the Palace Theater website. We’d love to see you there!
Some of the things we’ve been up to since last time include SXSW, the Houston Rodeo and Backwoods events. Our intern, Hillary, joins us as well for this episode. Yep, you’ve seen her photo on Facebook but we decided to let her speak. 🙂
In our Texas music segment we introduce you to Abbi Walker for some good ol’ Texas Southern Soul sounds. A few fans sent in some questions about trip ideas for kids, underrated small towns and primitive backpacking adventures. Tune in to the podcast for all this and more!
