Lately I’ve been downloading podcasts from a radio show called This American Life and listening through them while I’m in my car.
The episodes are consistently hilarious, thoughtful, and informative. They do stuff that’s "serious" as well as "light." For example, they had a show awhile back called The Audacity of Government that details some of the shocking power grabs the administration has been engaging in recently. Then there was another one called What I Learned From Television that had me laughing for almost the whole hour. I’m right in the middle of one now (The Big Pool Of Money) that explains how we got into the mortgage crisis we’re in now (it’s fascinatingly complex).
What have you been listening to lately?
