Weirdness follow-up, House Hunters International has contacted us AGAIN to see if they could do a show. Think not. Though maybe the architect and builder would like it if we did, make their careers, no? If we like the job.
While listening this morning to a brilliant podcast, it struck me that it might be nice to share; so here are some of my favs:
WNYC Radio lab, cool thought provoking, slick, witty and funny, all you'd hope for from something out of NYC. I particularly loved their show that I listened to this morning on memory.
A Way with Words, that Beth recommended, a big fat thanks for that one.
I adore the Next Chapter with Shelagh Rogers, all about books! Then there is Quirks and Quarks, also from CBC.
The Guardian Book Podcast is also pretty darned good, out of the UK.
Then there is a new strategy I have, when I wake up in the night and can't sleep cause I'm fussing about something, or just can't get my brain to settle down, I turn on the iPod really really quiet and listen to interesting, but not toooooo interesting podcasts. My favourites are Excess Baggage, Coast and Country and Scotland Outdoors, all from the BBC. I enjoy these podcasts when I am awake too, but something about those British vowels discussing lovely walks through the damp and green countryside sends me right back to sleep. Lovely.
Finally, if you want to hear free books on podcast, CBC has Between the Covers, which has novels serialised into 20 minute segments, some abridged, some not. Mostly Canadian literature, which I humbly submit is some of the very best in English in the world right now, but some others as well too.
Anyone else out there listening to podcasts? Which do you like?
