Instructables on NPR's Weekend Edition Sunday March 9th, 2008 Answered

A story about online DIY culture including Instructables and an interview with me aired Sunday morning on NPR's Weekend Edition Sunday. It was right after the puzzle.

Instructables CEO Eric Wilhelm: The DIY aesthetic, at least sometimes, is about the subversive joy of making a prefab product "do something that it wasn't intended to."

If you missed it, the web edition complete with archived audio, is here:

So, if it is on at 8 EST, than it will be on at 5 PST, right? I'll have to get up before five to listen to its first airing. Okely doke.

Hey, thanks for the reminder....I will have to put a note by my automobile radio (since I will be in the car at the time) to have that on (I listen to that station anyways, when I have the radio on). :-)

In my area, WITF is an FM station. And if it is not simucast, it will be on whenever the local station has Weekend Edition Sunday scheduled. You should be able to find a local station and schedule online.

I think NPR also gives a weekly recording on their site as well.
