Do You listen to NPR?

I am a confirmed NPR junkie. In 2007 I posted a poll on my blog and at that time 55% of my community said they listened to NPR. A lot has happened since then, media has begun to adopt different models. NPR has adopted new media tools very well. See today's news about NPR's iPhone app They are active in the social media and my friend Andy Carvin @acarvin works as the NPR's Social Media Swami :). MY evening commute is usually timed to Marketplace.

I want to see how my network feels about NPR so help me understand and
Take this poll:
Some of the programs I love are : Marketplace, Wait Wait Don't Tell Me, Splendid Table. I am not surprised that in this economic crisis NPR has actually gained audience. I love the fact that they cover world events.

Some facts I found online:

Broadcasts of NPR’s flagship newsmagazines — Morning Edition, All Things Considered and their weekend siblings — reached 20.9 million listeners, a 9 percent gain. (Source:

However in the past decade this has changed dramatically. Now `Emirates (Dubai) Etihad (Abu Dhabi) Qatar Airways (In Doha, Qatar) have taken over these routes with their new aircraft and great service. From Washington DC, Emirates is an outlier, it flies in the morning at 10.55 from Washington Dulles Airport (IAD) and reaches Dubai at around 8.30 a.m. Other flights, Etihad, Qatar and flights with European stopovers take off after 9 p.m at night. I love this timing but it does cause a disagreement in my house. My wife prefers to fly Eithad due to the timings. My wife's viewpoint is that it is difficult to sleep on the Emirates flight since it starts in the morning. I enjoy the morning flight. My game plan is to sleep less for a few days to my Emirates flight. Once on the flig
