You know, for the longest I refused to admit my love of talk radio. It just seemed incredibly UN-cool. But even as a child I remember my FAVORITE part of the music line up was when the DJ started talking. I've come to conclude (and accept) that my love of talk radio really boils down to a love of hearing stories. And since storytelling has been imprinted in our DNA for the last million years or so, I'd say there's probably a lot of other closeted talk radio listeners out there, too. Happy listening!

Definitely! I currently don't listen to much talk radio – or radio in general. When I'm in Kenya I listen to much more but I observe – and Kenyans, tell me if I'm missing something here – there's not that much talk radio. Missed opportunity? How can we make talk radio more cool and engage a new generation of people who've grown up with the internet?

Or do we take advantage of new mediums for the same/similar result? For example, I sometimes listen to Ted Talks as I work. Similar in concept to listening to a talk radio show isn't it? Listening to amazing stories, broadening your horizons, learning something.
