My mother’s been a reader of The New York Times. That’s her source of information to the point where my father once said she had a medical degree from The New York Times. It must be genetic, but for me it’s NPR. That’s my source of all information. I think my daughter will follow in my footsteps. I have a son and daughter and both of them were those ones the ones that had to sit in the back seat and listen to NPR, but I think they’re converts now. It’s fun to hear those stories because it’s true. If they listen to it growing up, they end up listening as adults too. I am definitely smarter and more knowledgable on many different topics thanks to WBHM.
