PRX: Bright

Hi friend of PRX,

Is an eclipse the most confounding natural paradox? You want to look directly but if you do your eyes become burned-out cinders.

PRX doesn’t want your ears going blind from listening to unhealthy radio. Luckily, PRX is like a sun pulling in cool talent asteroids like The Field Trip Podcast, the State We’re In weekly story, this one on Pop Tarts, memories of first kisses, and the Guest DJ Project at KCRW with Miranda July.

Find your own brilliance!
-John


Memorial Day

Summer cranks up, too!

And for the drive home…

  • Revisit Steinbeck’s journey across America 50 years later with Travels with Mike from John Biewen/Center for Documentary Studies.
  • In this special free to all stations, Sound Opinions marks the 45th anniversary of one of the most significant years in rock and roll, 1967.

Life Choices

No one said this would be easy
