fantastic

25 or 30 years after the war, i was at our house in northern vermont. on a warm summer day, i heard the distinctive whap,whap,whap from the late 1960's. with my wife and kids in tow, i ran into the tree line. it was the vermont national guard, with a flight of huey's training. some things never leave you.

Amazing!

Krista always delivers great interviews with insights, and she offers listeners an emotional connection to someone new. This is my favorite episode to date, as it combines one of my favorite radio hosts with my favorite author, and despite the possibility of letdown, it delivers. I'll probably listen to the unedited version later this week.

Polyandry, etc.

I am a voracious consumer of PRX content. I adore series such as Short Docs which never fail to interest and satisfy. However (you knew this was coming), the service seems to me to be taking a hard turn toward the mawkish – a steady stream of victim narratives. I would think a more muscular, upbeat, and forward-looking re-vamp would be in order.

Yes, I think I understand your staff is young and, quite naturally, in thrall to what it feels is the empathetic and sympathetic. On the other hand, I don't think they actually accomplish what all of us want. That is, a celebration of the aural panorama largely free from paeans to what they suppose are the plights of what are actually very small slivers of the society.

OK - We Get It

I am a huge consumer of public broadcasting content. For reasons which puzzle me, these services seem determined to plow the furrow of victim hood, unleavened by coverage of a way forward. Stated more simply, after being reminded many, many times of the slave era, the era of Jim Crow, the efforts of MLK and others in the 1960s ...... what am I to do? What is anyone to do? To be sure, an education on the history of blacks in America is vital.

However, I often ask myself, when I will I begin to hear persuasive coverage which might actually aid beleaguered black communities? You know the issues: teen pregnancy, male parental abandonment, family disintegration, educational failures, drugs, gangs, and heinous violence. Is there any hope of change of these are not also addressed? Is there any hope of change if the essentially dead-end of scolding is all the public is left with?

Thank you for reading,

Whales and Other Minutae+

NPR a refuge for jejune millennials, wholly unprepared to take a mature view of the world. The odd, the quirky, the mildly salacious, and in the case of whale "study" a bullhorn for non-science.
