I know, I know. I never write, I never call. I promise to give a more comprehensive update about my internship at NPR and the Future … in the future.

Just a quick post before I head home to Wisconsin for the holiday weekend – I had the privilege of interviewing the farmer who raised this year’s flock of presidential turkeys, and today I got to cover the annual White House turkey pardoning ceremony for NPR’s It’s All Politics blog. I’ve really made it, eh?

Happy Thanksgiving!
