"I listen to NPR to hear the news, the features, the interviews, to learn. [Weekend in Washington] has provided a wonderful opportunity to find out how it all works, to hear the presenters in a less formal setting and to gain an appreciation for the efforts that make it all work."
"I love the diversity of topics, from very serious to light-hearted. It's always fun to see what the on-air folks look like and to meet them. I also love meeting other attendees. It's a very good group of people."
"Of course we realize the NPR correspondents and staff are incredibly professional, even-handed journalists. Now, having seen them in person, one knows that is also absolutely who they are as individuals - it is very validating of one's trust and confidence."
"It was one of the best organized, most productive, most informative, and most satisfying NPR events I have ever attended... and I have been attending NPR events since 1972."
"... From the panelists, to the topics, to the audio or visual interludes, every element of the sessions were simply perfect."
