The Memory Palace is a series of short, surprising history stories from veteran producer, Nate DiMeo. I love almost everything about this series. Each episode is a short, well written, funny, sad and compellingly told story about the past. If history was always told like this, there’d be whole lot more unemployed history majors out there begging for change.
How To Do Everything is half advice show, half survival guide. Here’s how it works: you send HTDE your questions—from “how do I break up with my hairstylist of 20 years” to “how do I not sound stupid when ordering wine” to “how do I escape a charging rhino”—and Mike and Ian answer them. Usually, given how little they actually know how to do, they find experts who can help you out.
How To Do Everything is hosted by Mike Danforth and Ian Chillag and produced by Blythe Haaga. You may know Ian and Mike as two of the names Peter Sagal says really fast at the end of NPR’s Wait, Wait…Don’t Tell Me.
Sound Opinions is hosted by Jim DeRogatis and Greg Kot, two of the finest and best-recognized pop music writers in the nation. Jim and Greg save you the time of that pesky listening process, by boiling down their reviews to three easy to use phrases: Buy It!, Burn It! or Trash It!
Sound Opinions is produced by WBEZ Chicago and distributed nationally by PRX.
UnFictional is a program of storytellers and documentaries that cover the ground between the sophisticated and the profane.

Remix is excited to present stories from the hottest new public radio show, Snap Judgment, hosted by Glynn Washington.
Snap Judgment tells stories about extraordinary and defining events in people’s lives. Snap Judgment’s raw, intimate, and musical brand of storytelling dares listeners to see a sliver of the world through another’s eye.
One of the greatest ongoing radio series of all time is Radio Diaries. Joe Richman, and his crew of Anayansi Diaz-Cortez and Samara Freemark, work with people to document their own lives for public radio. The diarists become public radio reporters like you’ve never heard before, and along with keeping their own audio journal, they record interviews and collect sound from their daily life. All along the way the Radio Diaries crew works with them and ultimately turns the 30+ hours of raw tape into the best documentary you could ever hope to hear on the radio. In true public radio tradition, you will be moved and learn something new, no doubt, but the greatness the Radio Diaries approach is that they are also poignant, charming, funny, joyful, and amazing entertainment. If you keep it tuned to Public Radio Remix you’ll hear them playing around the clock, but you can also listen, find, rate all the Radio Diaries stories on demand at PRX.
Remix fav, Hillary Frank’s daughter, Sasha, was born in Februrary 2010. Hillary created The Longest Shortest Time as a bedside companion for new moms who want to hear in the middle of the night (or day—what’s the difference, really?) that they are not alone. And that as never-ending as those first months seem, they don’t last forever.
The Hackney Podcast is an award winning exploration of the London borough of Hackney. The neighborhood has many different faces: one of Britain’s poorest places but culturally one of its richest; an area of London profoundly marked by its history but, as the Olympics loom, caught in a frenzied period of change. The program is beautifully crafted, aurally immersive and journalistically inventive.
