Thank You, Public Radio!

signed letters from Rick Steves and a santa hat

 

I’m so grateful for public broadcasting — and for all the hardworking people who make it happen. Thanks to them, we can all enjoy programming that assumes an attention span, respects our intellect, and is driven not by a passion for keeping advertisers happy, but by a passion for educating and inspiring us to embrace life and celebrate diversity.

My weekly public radio show, Travel with Rick Steves, is one of my favorite endeavors. I’ve been at it for 13 years now, and along with producers Tim Tattan and Isaac Kaplan-Woolner, I’ve created more than 500 hours of radio. Rather than being the guide, I get to be the curious traveler, acting as a conduit between experts and my listeners. We all have a lot of fun together — talking travel, learning, and dreaming.

As a small expression of my appreciation for the more than 400 stations that air Travel with Rick Steves every week, I just popped a little gift in the mail for each of them, along with a short note. It’s no small task to sign a stack of notes like this…but when you get in the zone, you can buzz right through it. Here’s a little peek at me doing just that.
