Piece Comment

Review of NPR Geeks

OK, how geeky would it be of me to point out that "This American Life" is a PRI show. It's no skin off my nose -- I'm not the person running PRI's branding campaign. But still, I'd hope that at least on public radio we could get it right. As for the piece, I like it a lot. It's a great topic that public radio is afraid to tackle. It makes light of who our listeners are but with no malice whatsoever. It's produced in an unconventional manner that is very appealing. I didn't find the last story as compelling as the producer obviously did (I'd have shortened it), but that's a quibble. And you know what they say about opinions.
