NPR is a national producer of radio programming that dorks (well, hip dorks) like to proclaim their love for because they think it makes them look smart and cool. And maybe it does.
True NPR fanatics may own apparel or merchandise purchased directly from the organization as a sign of real devotion. We’re sure they’d be offended to see that now Urban Outfitters is selling their own version of an NPR shirt, officially outing the station as a hipster marker. So will all those people who are hipsters but say they aren’t now think twice about professing their love for public radio? [Urban Outfitters]
