Review of Curiosity Aroused Pilot

This is the best of PRX's TQ bunch. Rebecca is a natural. Program has an authentic, spontaneous feel. Music is well chosen -- lends a fresh hip-ness. The Q&A are a bit canned sounding...somewhat overproduced. Best to let this gal roam free, as she's got the chops. Here's to mo' Radio-Powered-Boston. Hey Rebecca!
