I love public radio so much.

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.

Jad and Robert are my gym buddies. In that I listen to them at the gym, not that we work out together (you knew this, I’m sure). Anyway, this is exciting. Welcome, Radiolab(’s intern).

Seconded. Except about the working out part.

Oh man this is so exciting.
