Every year, National Public Radio (NPR) hosts Weekend in Washington, which brings together radio enthusiasts and supporters from across the country. This year was their first time introducing "Generation Listen," a group of young, influential NPR listeners. Entrepreneur Joel Holland hosted a breakout dinner at his penthouse in Turnberry Tower, which was catered courtesy Occasions Caterers and featured a heated discussion about the future of public radio, which could evolve rapidly over the next decade to keep up with our digital, share-happy world...speaking of, have you downloaded the fantastic NPR app??
