Life, Inc. and Member Drives

Social critic Douglas Rushkoff talked this morning about what he sees as the "corporate model" taking over almost every aspect of our lives. Whether you think that's hyperbole or not, it was nice to hear him mention listener support for public radio as a prime example of how people can make decisions that run counter to the pressures of a strictly commercial market. Rushkoff used public media to make the point that we need to think over the long-term about where we spend our money, not just looking for the lowest immediate price or gratification.

With that in mind, thank you for supporting KPCC and SCPR. Our listeners in recent months and years have made an impressive investment in our news coverage. We're doing our best to honor that commitment and hope you take part in this short fiscal year-end drive.
