NPR's Ask Me Another put a special Halloween spell during this week's show taping by bringing in an expert in all things scary for the occasion. R.L Stine, the man who sent 90s children running for their flashlights, joined the show this week as a VIP (Very Important Puzzler) for a night of word games, puzzles, trivia and costumes, of course!

No fake blood or irony was lost on the Ask Me Another team's costumes this year - check out the slideshow to see what they came up with.

Oct 28, 2013

Thank you to everyone who helped us celebrate StoryCorps' 10th anniversary last week. We should be all cried out shouldn't we? Yes, yes, we should.

The Curious Listener: The StoryCorps Edition

Oct 25, 2013

As StoryCorps celebrates its 10th anniversary this week, we're joining listeners across the nation to toast their achievement and remember our favorite stories (so far!).

Every week on Morning Edition, you hear remarkable and heartfelt perspectives – from listeners like you. Have you or someone you know listened and been inspired to share your own stories? Check out this exchange with our Curious Listener for ways you can.

Today the much-loved and notoriously tear-jerking oral history project StoryCorps celebrates its 10th anniversary. You hear StoryCorps each Friday on Morning Edition, when NPR turns over the mic to everyday people to share their stories. The conversations that unfold - heartfelt, intimate, human - help us start our day feeling a little more inspired.

No matter how you take your public radio — a downloaded TED Radio Hour podcast or a Morning Edition show broadcast on your member station — there's one voice familiar to all NPR listeners. That's the NPR announcer, who voices credit to the member stations, corporations and institutions that generously support NPR and public radio.

Not Another &#@*$! Pledge Drive

Oct 22, 2013

Oh, pledge season. We hope you, like us, have come to embrace the real gems of public radio membership drives: the very creative, clever and quirky ways the staff at our Member Stations show you they really mean it when they say 'your support is vital to what we do.'

Throughout this fall membership drive season, we've been completely entertained by these special 'thank yous' created by pledge-drive pros showing appreciation for your support. Because, after all, it's you who keep public radio going pledge drive after pledge drive. After pledge drive.

Sustaining Member Darbi Blencowe tells us why KUAR's Malcolm Glover, Stardate, and Diane Rehm make her day.
