Description

How’s Your Day? tells you a story you don’t know from a day we all remember. Where were you on 9/11? When did you hear Princess Diana died? How did you find out about the eruption of Mount St. Helens? From KUOW, How’s Your Day? revisits iconic events, shifting the focus to a different story from the same day. Innovative, deeply personal narratives add a new dimension to landmark moments in history. These are little known first-hand accounts from those who experienced triumphs and tragedies while the world was looking somewhere else. View the timeline at: www.howsyourday.org

Doesn't stick to its premise

I subscribed to this podcast after hearing about its premise on NPR. I listened to all ten episodes at once. I have got to say that it was barely similar to what was advertised and I am thoroughly unimpressed.
A lot of the stories that are supposed to take place on the same day as the more well-known events of the “days we all remember” only happen around the same time frame as the overshadowing or simultaneous event, and not on the very same day as the event. This is somewhat in conflict with the promoted premise. Unfortunately, most of those particular stories are also especially uninteresting.
They also do some of the same absolutely awful and annoying things with their audio that Radio Lab does with theirs. Luckily, the How’ Your Day advertising isn’t nearly as condescending as Radio Lab’s.
The last story is about Right Whales and how they respond to stimuli produced above the water. This is “contrasted for context” with the terrorist attacks perpetrated on 9/11/2001, but what is described in the main story directly correlates with the USA’s grounding of planes in response to those attacks. This cause and effect story is in complete conflict with what is put forward as the premise of this program. Were the producers too lazy to stick with the program’s format, or did they think we, the audience, would be too stupid to notice that they had gone of the reservation? General ineptitude is certainly another possibility.
One should also note that the revelation in the story about the Right Whales is, at best, barely worthy only of a quick mention on the local news on a very slow day.
How ironic.

Outstanding!

I love this new podcast - give it a listen. Totally worth your time.

Chills y'all

Oh jeez. I fired this up this morning and was not expecting to have the kind of emotional reaction I did. The stories are not only interesting and important, but they unfold in a way you've never heard. More like an intricately woven collage of interviews, overlaping news clips, natual ambiance, all playing off an incredible and haunting musical score. The end result left me with goosebumps and I can't wait to hear the rest.
