a classic show finally gets a real podcast
Thanks for upgrading this podcast from what was just the opening monologue before. Michael Feldman's show is always entertaining and often the first hour has a fairly long and interesting interview with a writer. Theoretically, this is a game show, though most of the hour is spent in banter with audience and guests and Michael's trademark edgy-but-gentle humor. This show has been a treasure for years, a perfect way to spend a weekend afternoon. Listeners who want to hear the whole show can stream it from Michael's website, but as PRI offers the option just the first hour to stations, this podcast is welcome.
Getting better all the time
Now getting 1 hour in place of just the "All The News That Isn't". Maybe someday we'll get the entire show. Local NPR station has dropped the show and a distant NPR station that still has it is at the mercy of weather for reception.
I concure. We need the whole show.
I didn't realize when I subcribed, that it was only an hour. I usually have time to listen to the show on WCBE our other public radio station here in Columbus, OH, but alot of times I miss it.. That's why I go to www publicradiofan com. They list all the times during the week that the show airs, as well as every other public radio show. It allows you to catch the various streams be it windows, real audio, quicktime, .mpr, etc. It's a great site. I can only guess because they are sponsored by Audible com that audible didn't want to give up the revenue stream. Oh well. m.
