NPR is doing a thing, that I kind of respect/like, where they are trying to bribe their listeners into donating now, in order to avoid the yearly fundraising campaign in April. They’re like, “Right now we stand on the precipice looking down on 2 possible futures. In one future, NPR broadcasts a pledge drive for 9 days straight, trying to explain why shit costs money, which everyone hates. But it doesn’t have to be that way. In the alternative future, you give us the money we need before the end of February … and there’s no pledge drive in April” (I mean, they seem to be making this notice every 20 minutes, so it probably works out)…. It’s just like, I love how NPR knows who its listeners are.
