PRX Ponders Convergence

Hi friend of PRX,

Tied to the roof? Riding piggyback? Sometimes unconnected stories just beg to be brought together (apologies to the Romneys, NASA, and Seamus!).

Public Radio Remix works that way: the PRX streaming format presents stories in a new context that listeners tell us is addictive and compelling.

Or, look at what we highlight each week here or the logged-in PRX homepage: a broad mix of long and short form radio that speaks to variety AND connection.

What mixes do you like on PRX? Create yours.

WOOF!
-John
