I was still getting a few straggler emails for the Cassette Tape Episode of the Retroist Podcast contest, so I extended it a little longer. Last week I picked a winner and sent the tape out to two listeners named Jim and Allison. I had so many great stories from people about why they should win, but a few were real standouts, so I put the best ones in a hat and pulled them at random. I do not want to get into the details of people’s personal stories (those are theirs to tell), but I can say that Jim and Allison used the Retroist Podcast on her iPod when Allison was in labor. A move I have a hard time understanding, but a very humbling honor to be sure.
I wish I had recorded more of these and maybe will again someday. In the meantime thanks for all your entries and stories and congratulations to Jim, Allison and Lilly.
