Description
Hosts and listeners select their favorite stories from the National Public Radio archives, celebrating life, love, hope—and cookies.

This eclectic collection gathers all-time “driveway moment” favorites, including some suggested by listeners themselves.

These literate, intelligent, profoundly touching stories are worth hearing over and over again, and now you don’t have to stay in your car.

What is a Driveway MomentSM? Maybe it’s happened to you as it has to countless others. . . . You’re driving home, listening to a story on NPR. Suddenly, you find yourself in your driveway (or parking space or parking garage). Rather than turn the radio off, you stay in your car to hear the piece to the end. It’s a Driveway Moment.

The NPR Driveway Moments Series collects these “best of” stories so that you are never more than a “play” away from a Driveway Moment.
