In partnership with Texas Monthly, the following articles focusing on Texas society are now available in a bundle as an audio download:

* "Busting Out of Mexico" by Jan Reid, read by Bruce DuBose
* "Showdown at Waggoner Ranch" by Gary Cartwright, read by Bruce DuBose
* "Cops and Robbers" by Katy Vine, read by Lydia Mackay
* "Lost and Found" by Katy Vine, read by Lydia Mackay
* "The Trouble With Innocence" by Michael Hall, read by Christopher Ryan Grant

"Busting Out of Mexico" by Jan Reid details the unbelievable story of an eclectic group of Texans that broke Americans out of a Mexican jail.

"Showdown at Waggoner Ranch" by Gary Cartwright is the saga of the Waggoner family, and their fight over the inheritance of the second largest ranch in Texas.

"Cops and Robbers" by Katy Vine investigates the Panama Unit, a group of police officers tasked with cleaning up the drug trade along the Southern Texas and Mexico border who instead became a part of it.

"Lost and Found" by Katy Vine profiles the refugee community of Amarillo, Texas and one woman who volunteers to help them settle into their new lives.

"The Trouble with Innocence" by Michael Hall explores one man's journey through the Texas justice and prison system and asks how, after seeking innocence for 39 years, he could deny his own exoneration.
Antonia Lloyd-Jones has translated works by many of Poland's leading contemporary novelists and reportage authors, as well as crime fiction, poetry and children's books. Her translation of Drive Your Plow Over the Bones of the Dead by 2018 Nobel Prize laureate Olga Tokarczuk was shortlisted for the 2019 Man Booker International prize. For ten years she was a mentor for the Emerging Translators' Mentorship Programme, and is a former co-chair of the UK Translators Association. View titles by Various
