So I dunno if you saw but im living here in SF now...
oh hell no. how dare there be other visitor messages other than my own?!?
Actually forget what I said about that episode. "Time" is an awesome starting point. I relistened after posting that. Here you go:
Radiolab is the science podcast. Here's a stream for an episode I really liked:
I can't remember if you were already a This American Life listener, but if not, this is a great one:
I've also been getting into Wiretap with Jonathan Goldstein recently, but I haven't listened to enough of them to have a recommendation yet.
For laughter purposes, I like Uhh Yeah Dude and You Look Nice Today. I'd start at the first episode with UYD, since a lot of it is based on continuing humor, but YLNT can be accessed easily from any episode (I think "Aunt Nancy" is a particularly funny one, if I remember right). UYD is one of my favorite things on this planet, but it doesn't click with everyone. If it clicks, though, your life will be better as a result. It's truly amazing.
Thanks man. I hadn't any idea until I was actually doing it just how much thought each pick takes, you know? So the feedback is cool and much appreciated. I'm really glad you enjoyed it, cheers.
