I love public radio in Seattle

August 3rd, 2007 · No Comments

For the majority of my life, my dad worked for a public radio station in Spokane, KPBX, so I’ve always had an affinity for public radio. Since moving to the Seattle area and spending a lot of time in my car commuting to and from work (usually about 35 min – 1 hour each way) I’ve been listening to a lot of radio. When I first started commuting, I listened to a lot of commercial radio but I find that stuff gets really old, really fast. I can only listen to Umbrella by Rihanna so many times before my head wants to explode.

Recently, I’ve rediscovered my love for public radio. With the trio of eclectic music from KEXP 90.9, dance and techno from C89.5 and local, national and international news from KUOW 94.9 I can always find something good to listen to. Not only am I aurally satisfied, listening to public radio often seems to put me in a civically minded mood – encouraging me to soaking up as much information and culture as my brain can handle.

On another note, I haven’t posted in a while – after graduating, I started at a company called Ascentium. They are an interactive technical marketing and consulting firm. I worked there as a web developer for about 2.5 months and then I decided I wasn’t really being challenged enough and I missed writing PHP a lot. So I left to start working at a startup that I had looked at during my initial job search right after graduating, Treemo.

I’ve been at Treemo since the middle of June and I’m loving it. We have some really cool stuff coming down the pipe in the near future. Right now, I’m working on writing an API – very exciting work. Now that I’m working back in the PHP biz, I’m going to start writing about developing PHP again. Stay tuned.
