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

Every NPR listener has had at least one “driveway moment” and probably more. You’re so captivated by a story on All Things Considered, Weekend Edition, Morning Edition, News & Notes, or another NPR program that you stay in the car to hear it through—even if you've arrived at your own driveway. This eclectic collection gathers all-time 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.
