NPR, Public Radio Will Outlast Podcasts

In a fun irony, I defend NPR from those suggesting it is doomed.

My latest for Thoughts on Journalism takes one of the ongoing controversies on the future of National Public Radio, and the us/them issue that puts NPR on one side, and This American Life, Serial, Gimlet, Radiotopia and the cool kids on the other side. In my opinion, we’re all on the same team, and any opinion of NPR’s demise is premature. I also dump on the lingering idea that radio is dying too… because it’s crap.
