PRX Stays Afloat

Hi friend of PRX,

PRX got drenched last week, all because of two little girls and an accident with scissors. This one feature flooded our servers with traffic from all over the world — here’s the story of what happened. So, as we dry ourselves off, thank you for hanging with us as we catch up with some traffic data on PRX.org.

Meantime, get ready for the Olympics. And get all patriotic for the 4th with some great radio pieces.

Pass the towel!
-John
