Quotes & Awards

  • “In this latest installment of the popular Driveway Moments series, correspondent Kelly McEvers exudes delight as she introduces a variety of stories drawn from the NPR archives. Why does it sound like she’s smiling? That’s the power of love, listeners soon learn, in all its variations and outcomes. Most stories are less than five minutes long but deliver a resonant emotional punch, alternately balancing humor and sentiment. Though familiar voices of journalists and essayists are peppered throughout, the highlight of a compilation like this is the wide array of voices from throughout the United States and the world. What better way to remind listeners of the power of love to ‘heal and transform’ anyone, anywhere?”
