    I Mean The Npr Radio Show But The Show Is Nice

     I remember sitting in my car on the way to class, and there was nothing on the radio, so I turned on NPR kinda hoping for some god news, and on the radio was this voice talking about his family and him recording his family on passover... and I was hooked... I didn't make it...

    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...

    Flight Or Invisibility?

    So...waht do you think?  Flight or invisibility?  I would go for flight, I think.  But there is an argument that people who chose flight really want to chose invisibility but have an obsession with nobility that they can't get past.  I don't know.  I do...

    Prom Episode

    Did anyone catch the prom episode? It just crushed me to hear that the bad-luck kid died in a car accident. His poor mom!

    I don't notice the accent when it's on tv, movies, etc. Too used to it. But when I hear the accent in a more personal setting, it's really nice. I find it kind of soothing.
