In honor of National Radio Day: the list of my top 10 Public Radio Programs that was in my short-lived (read: two issue) high school zine. Still pretty accurate. (Note: ranking is basically random past #3)
Wait! Wait! Don’t Tell Me (DUH)
This American Life (close second)
A Prairie Home Companion (Garrison Keillor, you complete me)
Says You!
[American] Radio Works
Studio 360
Selected Shorts
Fresh Air
Anything Jay Allison does (kind of a cop out, but the man is a public radio producin’ genius and hotwired into my soul)
City Arts and Lectures
Also Radiolab (don’t know how that got left off the original list. Oops), and let’s just go ahead and say every single program on KQED’s schedule.
Public radio is the business, y’all.

I totally forgot about National Radio Day. (It was Saturday.) We are honored to be #8 on your list. (Very nice penmanship.)  View in High-Res

In March of my freshman year, my roommate Skye and I attended a lecture given by Ira Glass as part of the World View lecture series as the Wharton Center. Tickets were free. Skye and I went because I remembered my friend Katherine, who is into cool stuff was in a Facebook group called “Ira Glass I want to have your babies.” I had never listened to This American Life before.
That night I fell in love with all things public radio.

Nice stencil.

    Some aid agencies in Haiti are as interested in saving souls as they are in saving lives. The World looks into some of the evangelical aid agencies operating in Haiti and the ethics of faith-based groups in disaster areas.

    (By the way, America Abroad also had a great exploration into the effects of faith-based organizations in Kenya, if you’re interested.)
