    Did you know that NPR’s social media team is now making our daily internal newsletter public? We are putting up all sorts of social media tips and tricks here: socialmediadesk. They’re helpful, I think, even if social media isn’t part of your job. We’re also sharing stuff we’re thinking about, in general. 

    The post above is from our intern laurenkkatz, who shares how to think about engagement on different kinds of platforms. Enjoy!

  1. littlesharkman asked: Hey. I have no idea if you guys would know this, but how would one go about applying for a summer time internship at a NPR station?

    Glad you asked! Our paid summer internships are now up! Apply here! 

    (PS: Check out the social media internship in particular. Our desk creates and analyzes tools for the newsroom, leads efforts across all social platforms in the newsroom, codes (!), and has a really, really good time.)

    Need more info? Check out the NPR Interns’ Tumblr and ask them anything (within reason.)

  1. Opinions about films — especially Oscar nominees — are complicated, hilariously varied, and wonderfully individual. To show that, we combed through comments on RottenTomatoes.com and scripted a series of pro-con debates — in the words of the Internet. Part Eight: “Captain Phillips”

    Today would have been Audre Lorde's 80th birthday. The writer and civil rights activist spoke with NPR's Carol Jones in February 1984.

    "I am very, very interested in solving the differences that exist between me and straight black women, between me as a black woman and black men, between me as a black woman and between white women, between me and any of those people for whom the future has a general shape that the future has for me," she said. "In other words, for those people who are interested as I am interested in bringing about a future that all of our children can flourish in."

    Check out yesterday’s post from nprchives, which features highlights from the NPR Archives, starting with 1984.

Frogs!  We have some! Help us give them suitably literary names!
They’re kind of hard to see in that picture, so here’s a fancy close-up:

We adopted them from a fellow staffer who’s moving to Boston — what should we name them?  Team member Beth suggests Frog and Toad.  What do you think?

My vote is Frog and Frog. — LK View in High-Res
