NPR asked Ari Shapiro, one of the hosts of All Things Considered, about his media habits: what – and who – captures his attention.

Thank you to everyone who turned out to Happy Days Lodge to celebrate Garrison Keillor's tenure as host of A Prairie Home Companion! It was great meeting you and sharing this special event in the beauty of Cuyahoga Valley National Park. Several people requested recipes for the treats provided before the show. We have recipes below for the granola bites and the spicy nuts. If you would like one of the many recipes left in the recipe exchange, send a stamped, self-addressed envelope and we will mail three random recipe cards to you!
