"I listen for reasons that may not be the reasons others listen.  Working with students is thrilling.  When I hear their reports, I know what they have been through to capture the audio, write the script, and produce and edit.  I can measure their learning through their content. When I hear a catchy edit and a quality quote I feel a thrill that is beyond explanation.  Our student interns are the future of public radio.  I take pride in knowing UPR is contributing to the academic future of these creative and curious members of society."
