    I love it! Even though I'm a kid, I love NPR! (I guess you could totally label me as a geek for that.) What shows do you guys listen to?

    My radio dial stays on NPR more than any other station.
    I have satellite radio also but find myself listening to NPR for the news and talkshows. All Things Considered is one of my favorites.

    I listen almost exclusively to NPR. At home, in the car, at work. And I even subscribe to several podcasts. Could be considered an addiction - [​IMG]

    I love NPR in the car.

    DBF hates it. so I only listen when I'm in the car by myself.

    The Splendid Table always makes me drool.

    Don't sell yourself short! I didn't get turned onto NPR until i was in my 20s (in my 30s now).

    Brittany Spears is no role model. [​IMG]

    NPR is great! I've learned so many interesting things and found cool books, music, etc from listening.

    I heard one of my favorite quotes ever on NPR a few years ago. I believe it was said by David Sedaris "I check my email with the frequency of a lab rat self-administering cocaine."

    There's a Canadian show they play in the evenings (can't remember the name) that I love.
