I’m so excited to start this new series.
I plan to blog my top five shows each week…podcast/public radio-wise. For anyone who knows me “in real life,” they can attest that I am a bit of a NPR/podcast-aholic.
I want this series to be almost like a weekly digest–the best of the week.
So…this week if you need something to listen to while folding laundry, I suggest clicking the following little purple links:
“The High Cost of Cheap Fashion”
On Point with Tom Ashbrook — June 6, 2012
Interview with Elizabeth Cline, author of the new book Overdressed: The Shockingly High Cost of Cheap Fashion
“There’s No Such Thing as a Sold-Out Concert (Even for Justin Bieber)”
All Things Considered — June 4, 2012
“Assessing Consumer Concerns About the Meat Industry”
Fresh Air with Terry Gross — June 7, 2012
Interview with Tom Philpott, agricultural journalist for Mother Jones
“An Exploration of Strange Creatures”
NPR Pop Culture Happy Hour — June 8, 2012
This is always a must-listen, but I particularly enjoyed this week’s episode…mainly due to the mention of Carly Rae Jepsen.
So, there you have it!
I’ll be back next Friday with five more links–happy listening!

Joan Didion Blue Nights
December 3, 2011 § 2 Comments
I received a nice crisp, hardback copy of Joan Didion’s new book, Blue Nights for my birthday. This is rare (lately I’ve been reading a lot of books on my iPad…I know…bad). But this I have in actual book form and I am so excited to start reading it this weekend. Unfortunately, I also have a few things to get finished for bookclubs, etc.
Will there ever be enough time to read everything you want?!?!?
I love me some Joan Didion. But I also love me some caricatures of Joan Didion, of which there are many:
Ahhh, I love her!
