    Radio Specials A Modern Polaroid Love Story Taking and sharing digital photos instantly is second nature. But what is it about the white-framed, square Polaroid that survives in our digital lives? Does it make moments more special? Why has the Polaroid design so clearly marked current digital photography apps and photography memes? Mixing personal storytelling, interviews, music, sound effects and vox pop, the show takes a tender look at two modern instant photo technologies: Polaroid and digital photography, and the human connections we make with them. The show includes interviews with Gus Van Sant, filmmaker and photographer; and Christopher Bonanos, author of "Instant: The Story of Polaroid."
