“Broadcasts Worth Listening To”

Posted by Maximum Fun on 24th October 2010

Bill McKibben wrote a lovely piece for The New York Review of Books this week that summarizes the current state of the art in public radio. It focuses on some wonderful producers like Ira Glass, Jad Abumrad and Benjamen Walker and their struggles to make something new and great.

I was immensely gratified to see that McKibben included The Sound in his rundown of “Broadcasts Worth Listening To.” It’s an immense honor to be alongside folks like Ira and Jad. The whole list is worth checking out – almost every show is one I love, like To The Best of Our Knowledge and Q.
