1. Best Thing All Week: Let’s Do This?

    It is time: What was the best thing that happened to you this week, friends?

    I’ll start: Today is my last day of work. We’re having a water ice party at Fresh Air to celebrate. 

    I’ll continue: You have all been phenomenal and have made my job so much more fun. I know this medium is ephemeral and strange and silly at times (and it is) but I think over the past three years, we’ve connected in ways that could only take place like this, in this way. We’ve made public radio more fun and real and intimate — and it’s been a really awesome ride.

    Thank you. I’ve really had fun. I hope you have too.
