Wayne’s World doesn’t do justice to the entirety of the public access experience. Wayne’s World may have focused national attention on public access but true indie filmmakers like Richard Linklater and Robert Rodriguez owe the earliest beginnings of their careers to public access in Austin.

Operated and managed by nonprofits since 1973, channelAustin’s contract with the City of Austin allows the organization to air content on three broadcast channels, including channel 10-the longest continually running public access channel in the country.

It is our dream to share Access THIS with the world and we appreciate your help in getting us there.

Let's Get to the Heart of Things

"Music is our everything; we live and die for it. It’s our way to be human, so making songs that make that deep human connection is really important for The Used." In a new age of releasing music in a socially-distanced world, Bert McCracken and The Used face the challenge of human connection when physical connection is taboo. HM contributing writer Andrew Voigt dives in with McCracken about The Used's new album, Heartwork, his absence on social media, and why 2020 will be the year of rice.
