Heat Week



Texas summers are never for the faint of heart. This summer, it’s just felt worse.

During the week of Aug. 14, KUT will bring you stories of life in the heat. We’ll discuss why it’s so hot and tell stories of how the heat is affecting everyone from farmers to high school tuba players. We'll also share suggestions on how to beat the heat.
