I DO HAVE A VOICE! (I don’t just type and post words on a screen, really.) Since spring 2010, I’ve been taping a 25ish-minute weekly public-radio gardening program with my neighbors down the road in Sharon, Connecticut, at Robin Hood Radio, “the smallest NPR station in the nation.”
Browse the archive, including illustrated transcripts of each show, at this link.
I fit right in, since Robin Hood Radio’s other motto is: “Slightly Off, But Very Good.” The New York Times called them “NPR’s minnow,” in fact. The show is available free as a podcast and was named a top podcast by Fionnuala Fallon of “The Irish Times” in January 2020.
“Garden writer Margaret Roach is a household name in America, where her long-running, award-winning public-radio podcast A Way to Garden has achieved cult status,” she wrote.
Celebrating 10 years on the air in 2020, the show was named a “top-5” garden show by “The Guardian” in 2013, alongside some pretty amazing others, mostly from the BBC.
