I love the radio. I grew up listening to Prairie Home Companion among a myriad of other AM and FM broadcasts that my parents loved. When I hear Garrison Keillor’s voice, I immediately feel like I’m eleven years old and it’s Saturday night in the warm kitchen I ate a thousand dinners in. It makes me so happy. As I’ve grown up, radio has changed and so has the way we listen to it. I mostly stream radio through my desktop at home, or if I want to listen to music, I turn on Rdio on my computer or Pandora on my phone.

One of my favorite podcasts is Here’s The Thing by Alec Baldwin. He interviews Hollywood celebrities in one episode (Michael Douglas) and influential policy makers (Ed Rollins) in another. I’ve also just discovered The Longest Shortest Time (oh my, isn’t that title perfect), a podcast by mother Hillary Frank all about the “surprising struggles of early parenthood.” It sounds wonderful and I can’t wait to listen.

Do you have any favorite radio shows or podcasts? How do you listen to music — on your phone, computer, or a real radio? :)
