On my way home from Davis, I stopped in Oakland to see my very tiniest best brother. We had brunch, then I headed home on the glorious open-road, traffic free highway 5. Saved myself about 7 extra hours in the car by leaving Saturday night over Sunday morning. California, I'm learning.
I listened to SUCH good radio on my drive to and from NorCal. So good that I can't not share it. I heard what is now maybe my favorite episode of This American Life ever. Episode #402: Saves the Day. I also listened to a TAL episode in which one of the segments was from RADIOLAB! TAL and Radiolab are two of my favorite things in the world, so hearing old school Radiolab introduced by Ira Glass in This American Life made me literally squeal with joy. Like a radio turducken. I also listened to some great old Radiolab podcasts, a lot of which discussed the making of Radiolab. I love hearing passionate people talk about making the thing they love. But one of my favorite shorts was the one about quicksand. Why doesn't anyone talk about quicksand anymore??
