A little-known fact about myself: I rarely watch TV (save for Mad Men of course, which I watch on iTunes). I try so hard to get into shows like The Bachelor[ette] and The Hills/The City, but I just can’t do it. Do you know how many conversations I have not been able to participate in because I don’t follow reality television?! The number is probably in the thousands. Don’t hate me for saying this (!!), but I find public radio endlessly more fascinating than The Real Housewives of [insert city name here]. I begin each day by listening to NPR’s Morning Edition and I look forward to Sunday nights when I can stream the latest episode of This American Life from the program’s website. I love that radio shows force me to use my imagination. And I love that they’re about real people-- real heartbreaks, real victories.. Call me what you may (I call myself a 60-year-old trapped in a twenty-something’s body), but I’d take Ira Glass over Lauren Conrad anyday :)

I’d love to know-- what radio shows and/or podcasts do you listen to? Besides The Skirted Roundtable, I really have yet to explore the realm of podcasts .. Is there anything I'm missing out on?

I'm right there with you. I don't really watch anything although since we've gotten the dvr, I do record Man Shops Globe otherwise, I listen to whatever is on NPR when I get into the car. Yesterday and today I listened to Radio Lab on NPR (I hadn't before). It was a fun program. I really like the way it's done.

Not having TV easily accessible (or english language TV) has led me to utterly despise it. I watch some soccer here and there with the boy and have a couple favorite series I indulge myself in from time to time, but the reality stuff has passed its time. I was also going to suggest WNYC Radio Lab. It is super interesting and you always learn something new. Also "Stuff you should Know" and "Stuff you missed in History Class" are interesting, and educational ;) although perhaps not quite the caliber of This American Life. The moth podcasts are always entertaining as well and I listen to lots of news podcasts to get my fill of American day to day (helps me not feel so homesick, but might be making me a little too political). I need to check out the skirted roundtable, that is new to me!

Ooh, great suggestions! I'm so happy that I asked. I'll have to check out Radio Lab for sure :)

I listen to DotComBoom and the Ricky Gervais podcast! Definitely check those out if you need a laugh. I've been trying to get into This American Life for a while and I always forget. Need a sticky note of epic proportions.

I love This American Life!! And, I see that a couple of people have already recommended Radio Lab, but I can't stress enough how good it is. I may even like it better than This American Life. Ohhh, blaspheme!

I completely agree with you. I love NPR but I find I don't listen to it nearly as much now as I did when I was working full-time. It's hard to find time in grad school for much of anything.

This is why we need to hang out! We don't have a TV either and the only show I watch is Mad Men (on iTunes!). Not to mention I have a serious crush on Ira Glass! Love you Fallon.

Hooray for radio listeners! I love how many kindred spirits there are in this blog community :)

I thought I was the only one who could love NPR and Sibella Court. I guess I was wrong. I love that blogs make us feel that we aren't alone :)

I love Stuff you missed in history class....those are great when driving long distances for sure!
