NPR ticking you off? 🙂

Or you can stream live if you live in R land and don’t have a nearby station. Like me.

Yeah, just can’t swallow all that hatemongering about Nazis and racist Latino judges and black Harvard presidents and professors, on NPR. . . and that Science Friday, so evolutionary! 😉

Seriously, I spend so much time in the car, where I find myself craving less raving. You know I’ve listened to more hours of Limbaugh/Beck/Hannity over the years than nickels in my total college education costs, right? I am the champ of taking them seriously and really trying to understand. I even used to watch Limbaugh’s old TV show back in the day — how many people can say that? — and it was a then-fresh, though now-clunky-seeming precursor to crossing politics and entertainment as both sides do much better today. I was never interested in subscription radio when it was shock jockwokkery but if it’s Rachel Maddow and her smart sisterhood, I think I have to have it.

Nance, you’re amazing! I thought I’d need to buy a special receiver like a cell phone through some service, with a subscription contract etc. But I went to your link and right this minute I am hearing it live! — through iTunes that FavD and Young Son use on our desktop for maintaining the family’s ipods but I know nothing about. So I just saw it on the AirAmerica site and opened “iTunes” from our start menu, clicked a couple of time, and voila!

(I still would need to subscribe and download to the ipod for car-listening, I guess — but still. This is cool!)

Ooh! Ooh! I have an answer, too!

Podcasts! Recently I’ve been listening to Point of Inquiry, Chariots of Iron, Stuff You Missed in History Class, iTunes U… For long drives, I download books. Given the choices, I stopped listening to talk radio years ago.

Clearly I’ve been providing an important service for you two then, subjecting myself to the escalating vitriol and duly reporting it for your um, continuing education? . . . 😉

Better you than me. We have enough crazy driving down here. 🙂
