Austin: A History of the Capital City
- Fred Rider Cotten Popular History
- By: David C. Humphrey
- Narrated by: Chris Hendrie
- Length: 1 hr and 53 mins

The founding of the University of Texas turned the seat of politics into the seat of education, but Austin's 19th-century dreams of becoming a river port and a factory town came to naught.
