    No Need For Mtv's "trl"... I Have Npr's "tal"

    "This American Life" is literally something I just happened upon during a Saturday drive.  I was running from my place in Venice, CA to my friends down in Rolling Hills, CA.  It isn't a long drive but it isn't necessarily quick either. Definitely to short for a book on...

    A Fan From The Start

    I started listening way back and I took awhile to enjoy it. Now I am hooked. The show has become more nuanced and dimensional over time. Every episode is like a little work of art. Having worked in radio, I know how hard it is to pace a story. Ira glass also makes good use of...
