WHAT IS A DRIVEWAY MOMENT? Maybe it’s happened to you as it has to countless others...you’re driving home, listening to a story on NPR. Suddenly, you find yourself in your driveway (or parking space or parking garage). Rather than turn the radio off, you stay in your car to hear the piece to the end.
Here are some of our listeners' favorite Driveway Moments. What's yours? Let us know at email@example.com
“It’s that touching of a human life, that human experience, that’s so important to hear."
"On The Moth, there was one girl who was talking about how terrible her first kiss was. It was just a really funny edition of The Moth Radio Hour kept me in my car for probably longer than I would have been otherwise."
"I have a lot of Driveway Moments. They happen a lot when I'm listening to This American Life. I heard this great story on This American Life about hold music, of all things."
“I didn’t think of Mayor Koch as a little skinny Jewish kid who would be bullied. It’s just really incongruous and I loved how honest he was and how he talked about how he stood up to the bully. I thought that was a window into a side of Ed Koch that you wouldn’t have gotten any other place but The Moth. It moved me and it made me realize that, you know, everybody starts out as a kid with a problem and most likely a bully to overcome and I thought it was just wonderful.”
