Zeugma (Austin, tourism)

Since its founding in the late 1830s, our home city of Austin, Texas, has been known by various names--Bat City, the City of the Violet Crown, and the Live Music Capital of the World, to name just a few. In this episode, the Zeugma team explores the history of Austin's nicknames and some of the ways that the city has transformed itself into a hub of tourist and musical activity. We also hear from a few Austinites who question whether or not the city is living up to its reputation for "weirdness."
