Join WUWM's Social Media Street Team

Mke Public Radio Geeks

Do you get excited when NPR references pop-up in TV shows? Or, when you spot an Ira Glass look-alike walking down the street?

"I know I'm a Mke Public Radio Geek because when I go to the grocery store, I make sure the WUWM logo on my tote bag is showing so others will see it." - Michelle
