Meraki Radio

Meraki  [may-rah-kee] (adjective) This is a word that modern Greeks often use to describe doing something with soul, creativity, or love — when you put "something of yourself" into what you're doing, whatever it may be.

Meraki Radio tries to live up to the definition of this interesting word. Anyone who wants to get behind the mic and talk about meraki in their own life-- whether it be professional, historical, artistic, scientific, prolific or otherwise is encouraged to contact the show at kdrtmeraki@gmail.com.
