"If I switch it on, there's a familiar voice or familiar story."

Madison Evangelista

Kennewick, WA

This is Madison from Kennewick, Washington. I think public broadcasting is super important and being able to hear yourself in the stories that you hear. I work in storytelling so that’s essentially what I’m about but- I’ve had Parosmia since end of march of last year, which is a side effect of COVID and so it makes it so that my smell is distorted. So, when I experience food it’s different, like chicken tastes like dirt. So, somebody sent me the NPR podcast episode about it and I was like ‘yeah this is exactly what I have!’ Which was sad but also really cool that somebody had done something like that and I could hear myself. Even if I don’t always listen, like I know the radio is there and available to me all the time so if I switch it on there’s a familiar voice or a familiar story and I can enjoy that.
