Listen Up: We Now Have a Radio Show—Based on Our 10 Things Newsletter!

Listen Up BY erica 05/11/2015


Something you might not know about us because it doesn't really come through on the internet: We talk a lot. A whole lot. And so we decided to put our jabbermouths to good use with a weekly radio show on Heritage Radio Network (the geniuses who brought you After the Jump with Grace Bonney and Radio Cherry Bomb!). Every Wednesday at 1p ET, you can catch us here (LIVE!) talking about our latest discoveries on A Few Things with Claire and Erica—think of it as an extension of our Monday "10 Things" newsletter, but with a bonus very special guest each go-round and plenty of tangents. 


Oh, and don't feel like you have to listen when they air, either: We'll post links to the shows on our site for your streaming pleasure. (You can also follow along on Stitcher, iTunes, or whatever magical tool you use to track these types of things.)


Because we hardly want to keep you waiting, our first two episodes are ready, here and now. They're 30-ish minutes and pair well with lunch, in our experience. So keep scrolling.
