Austin Mother On Family, Learning And Bonding With Her Son

Jun 11, 2018

Ernestine Balderrama Kubicek and Christopher Morse

The StoryCorps mobile booth was in Austin in January, and we’re bringing you some of the stories that were recorded there. Locally recorded stories will air on Monday mornings during Morning Edition and archived here.

Ernestine Balderrama Kubicek earned her Masters and Ph.D. from the University of Texas, had a long career in corporate America, and now runs her own consulting firm. But before all that, she was born in Brownwood, Texas, to a contractor father and homemaker/bookkeeper mother. She sat down in the StoryCorps mobile booth with her son, Christopher Morse, and shared some memories.

This piece was produced for KUT by Michael Lee with interviews recorded at StoryCorps, a national nonprofit with a mission to provide Americans of all backgrounds and beliefs the opportunity to record, share and preserve the stories of our lives. 

Thank you to our sponsors of StoryCorps' visit to Austin: Cap Metro and We Are Blood
