Have I mentioned that I love NPR? Or that I love the BBC? I think I have. Whether or not I actually am, I always feel smarter after listening to/watching their programs.
I love music too, but when driving in the car I can’t stand to listen to the radio. I usually opt for programs like Dr. Laura or Dave Ramsey. During election season I can’t stomach talk radio. A long time ago I was on a big NPR kick. I subscribed to multiple NPR podcasts and listened to them on my iPod any spare minute. Then for some reason my NPR passion faded and I haven’t listened to it for awhile.
This morning while driving home from an appointment there were no other options so I turned on NPR and was immediately reminded why I love it. In the 20 minutes I listened I heard actually useful tips about cooking and I learned about a new BBC tv series (playing on PBS) that actually sounds like it is worth watching.
NPR you’ve won my heart again. How do you do it? How do you manage to appeal to such a broad and varied audience?
