Update: Voting in Rounds 1, 2 and 3 are over. Round 4 began Monday, April 1; you can still vote here.

Previously: Inspired by March Madness, KPCC has launched its own bracket, the public radio bracket. It’s your chance to cheer on and vote for your favorite public radio show, from national shows like All Things Considered and This American Life to KPCC’s own, including AirTalk, Take Two and Off-Ramp.

Our first round of voting, with 32 of the best shows in public radio, closes at 5 p.m. Pacific on Wednesday, March 20.

Round 2, with the public radio sweet 16, commences Thursday, March 21, with voting closing on Sunday, March 24.

The elite 8 will start Monday, March 25, with voting open until Sunday, March 31. Your final four begins Monday, April 1, and comes to a close Thursday, April 4.

Finally, the championship voting begins April 5 before coming to a close on Sunday, April 8. The results of the championship bout will be announced April 9.

KPCC's web producer Mike Roe is the man behind this idea, and he joins the show to tell us more.
