It’s the weekend and my favorite Public Radio listening days. Thanks to the Internet, I stream programs from all over the globe. Despite what my beloved seems to think, Public Radio isn’t just for people who were tormented on the playground as children. I trust there are many dim-witted, jock-types who are listening to PRI and drinking from pledge-drive coffee mugs as I speak. This is all beside the point though, it’s Saturday and the streaming is easy.
Start here at PublicRadioFan.com. On the weekends, I go to the “non-music only” area of the site to find what stations are presently airing my favorite shows. I click on the media player icon of my choice and enjoy. Right now I have on “This American Life” . Today’s show is about testosterone.
Here are a few of my other favorite weekend programs:
A Way With Words: A romp through the English language
Says You: “A Game of Words and Whimsy, Bluff and Bluster”.
Wait, Wait, Don’t Tell Me: “An Oddly Informative News Quiz”.
Weekend America: “A place where curious, lively hosts spark conversations, share unexpected stories and connect listeners with the most compelling ideas and events of America this weekend”.
Studio 360: Ellen Page, from Indie hit Juno is being interviewed. As is Jimmy Carter from the Blind Boys of Alabama.
No one’s going to shove you into your locker or dump you head first into a trash can for listening to great radio. So go forward and listen!
