Summer is in the air, and on the airwaves! The popular season is the subject of our latest podcast theme, and it turned out to be a popular one indeed!

This challenge yielded the most submissions yet from our listeners. I can’t help but think it has something to do with the season itself. It’s a bit of a magical time, where most people are on break from school, or on vacations with their families. It’s a time of leisure and fun, swimming and ice cream.

I’m generalizing of course, as everyone has their own unique feelings associated with summer. But part of the reason why it seemed interesting to do a podcast on it was because of its reputation and how it’s often depicted. Would we get a lot of similar entries? What does summer mean to me, to Kristina, and to our listeners? Let’s find out!
