Eric says, “I began listening to public radio in the early days of NPR, listening to Susan Stamberg, when she cohosted All Things Considered. I have continued to listen to public radio over the years and appreciated the long-form journalism that is provided by NPR and WUWM, with stories that go beyond the headlines.” As for favorite shows, he says, “If I had to pick... it would be Marketplace on the national level, and Capitol Notes from WUWM.”
