A reason not to throw yourself out of a tree

This isn’t local, but it’s good news so who cares? This American Life is now a free podcast. I

Of the few things in life that manage to live up to their hype (The New Yorker magazine, The Muppet Movie, fellatio) this show is high up on the list. My wife and I drove to Albuquerque this summer and took in eight episodes and while some were definitely better than others, none of them were bad.

Anyway, just thought I’d help spread the Gospel of Ira Glass.

And if anyone wants to share their podcast recommendations in the comments, that’d be great too.

    That is the best news I’ve heard all month!

    I love love love This American Life, and have even paid for a few eps., to have it free now is going to rule.

    Although it’s far out of the journalism genre, I’ve found two music podcasts I really enjoy: IndieFeed’s Hip Hop podcast, and Mashup of the Week — two really cool ways to keep your ear to the ground for creative, entertaining, independent music. If you use any of the feed aggregators, these two should be easy to find. I get mine through Newsgator.

    Just discovered your site and enjoy the writing. My name’s Nate Warren. I am, among other things, a marketing consultant for Five Points Plan here in Denver — a DIY label that represents the fine work of D.O. the Fabulous Drifter, an awesome local rapper for whom we’re trying to cultivate a larger audience. I keep an on-again, off-again blog on the travails of promoting music in this fragmented Denver market at chucklinart.com Enjoy.
