Never ceased to amaze me
When I lived in America for three years this weekly program on public radio never ceased to amaze me with the stories it told. It is not just the content of the stories, but the way they are told in a matter of fact manner. Thank you for making this a podcast - I have missed it back here in London.
If I was forced to only choose one podcast to have on my iPod, it would be this one. High quality weekly radio show. It's touching, funny, eye-opening.
I really should tell more people
I travel home on the train from London to Herne Bay every day, iread the free newspapers that i get from the staion and then for the following hour i listen to a wonderful radio programme hosted by Ira Glass... he sounds like a really nice bloke who likes to play poker! i heard that from one of his shows. Each show is broken up into seperate plays, its just so interesting. Subscribe now.
