As a KCRW Santa Monica listener (currently in Connecticut), I’m an avid listener of many NPR podcasts. Harry Shearer, Moth Radio Hour, Left, Right, and Center, Scheer Intelligence (current favorite) are a few examples. I haven’t been a regular listener of radio for an eon.
For years, I’ve been getting my news from NPR podcasts. Apologies if I misunderstood your post. If not, the podcast revolution is already here?
