We promise a h/t and 🙌
  1. Bike Talk (like car talk, but, yknow, for bikes)
    Suggested by   @lukaskaiser
  2. The Best Voices of NPR Past and Present
    Just Jackie Lyden, Ray Suarez, Audie Cornish, and David Bianculli taking turns reading the dictionary.
    Suggested by   @gwcoffey
  3. The New Yorker Digest
    Basically a blatant ripoff of The TED Radio Hour but it's centered around The New Yorker as opposed to TED talks.
    Suggested by   @Nicholas
  4. Reverse Fresh Air
    Every week celebs interview Terry Gross re: her highs and lows of the week, likes, dislikes, favorite things etc.
    Suggested by   @tbernstein
  5. Yelp Revenge
    Interviews with food/beverage service workers telling crazy stories about nightmare customers (many of whom have them bad Yelp reviews).
    Suggested by   @alissamaynot
  6. NPR Host or YA Protagonist?
    A game show, a la "Wait Wait, Don't Tell Me" where contestants have to guess if the name given is an NPR correspondent, or the heroine of a series of post-apocalyptic young adult novels
    Suggested by   @Waz
  7. ASMR Hour
    The most soothing voices of NPR, whispering the news while flipping pages or unwrapping candy to a soundtrack of crackly old records and Holly Herndon
    Suggested by   @helwolf
  8. The Three Seagulls
    Peter Sagal, Robert Siegal, and Steven Seagal host a very ill-informed investigation into their genealogy.
    Suggested by   @wpoor
  9. "Commute" - similar to Humans of New York, but would interview and share stories of people who are on their way or coming home from work. Perfect for the person on the subway with an overly active imagination about their fellow riders
    Suggested by   @christine
  10. The History of the Chicken Nugget
    @mikebaker 's grandfather invented them and he's written extensively on the topic. It's fascinating shit.
    Suggested by   @gabe
  11. Let the Kids Speak
    Each episode interviews different kids about different topics to hear their perspective on the world. It would be like an NPR version of Kids Say the Darndest Things.
