You Might Be A Nerd If…

To be honest, most WFYI Nerds know who they are, but here are some questions that will let you know if WFYI Nerds is the place for you:

  • Did you dig LeVar Burton and Reading Rainbow when you were growing up?
  • Were you an NPR "backseat listener" as a child?
  • Do you have kids of your own who you watch Sesame Street with?
  • Is NPR your #1 news source, whether you podcast, stream or listen at 90.1?

If you answered "yes" to one or more of these questions, then WFYI Nerd-dom is for you!
