Oh man, incredibly excited to be asked to contribute to NPR’s annual calendar this year. It took a few years after moving here, but for awhile now I have become a WNYC/NPR junkie. Like many New Yorkers, I turn to the radio more and more not just for news, but to learn interesting stuff and, in some ways, find comfort; it always seems to be the voice of reason when you most need it. There is something timeless and magical about listening to the radio and frankly no one does it better than WNYC.

Thoughts printed in the calendar: “NPR is a reliable companion. By nature, radio has a sense of nostalgic romance. Listening late into the night to the unique voices, thought-provoking programming and music gives us knowledge. Many times, public radio has made me think differently, or given me an idea. It nurtures free thinking and innovative dreams.”
