Story Corps: Guy who desinged the 50 state flag

He did it as a high school project.  His teacher gave him a B- ...until the president called.  It's a 2 minute story with four minutes of music after it.  Weird.

NPR's Very Own Radio

PC Mag review's the NPR radio:

"With access to more than 800 NPR stations, 20,000 Internet radio stations, and Pandora, Livio's Radio isn't your dad's table-top radio"

Do you really need 800 NPR stations, though?  8... Hundred...  If you are in an iron lung, this is the radio for you.

New Links In 'Links'

 

Adding 2 new (long overdue) links to the top of our links section (Look to the right. Over there -->)

99% Invisible and Love + Radio are great podcasts. I am not breaking news here. But if you haven't listened to them your really gotta check them out. 

99% Invisible is about design the way that Radiolab is about science. Love + Radio, I am not sure how to describe without sounding stoopid. It's fun and interesting and edgy (see?).

Anyway, I hope you like them in your ears.
