Factual America & The Lone Star Plate – Season Highlights & Top Episodes

Factual America & The Lone Star Plate – Season Highlights & Top Episodes

Factual America meets The Lone Star Plate for the second time. We are wrapping up Season 2 of Factual America, and our sister podcast The Lone Star Plate, which features interviews with famous Texans and explores compelling Texas stories, has just closed Season 3.    

Two fellow Texans, hosts Matthew Sherwood and Patrick Scott Armstrong, discuss the highlights of the last season, celebrating the most challenging year of our lives, and what episodes, guests and topics left a particular impression on them. Each host has chosen three episodes to talk about and to recommend to the audience to revisit.    

This is not exactly a top list. The hosts give shoutouts a lot of episodes that they enjoyed during the last season, and at the end of the episode, they introduce the teams behind both shows.
