I heard this on the The Moth on our beloved NPR. I was LMAO the whole time.

Shameless plug: This is an incredible show/podcast. It gets my family through many road trips (10 y.o. son included), and it keeps me up late on broadcast nights (NPR/Oregon Public Broadcasting). It is amazing food for thought & conversation-- listen to them all!

The Moth is indeed brilliant. And this little tale takes its right place in that firmament.

I fully admit a full on addiction to most of NPR. I listen to it in the car. When I take ella for a walk or I'm on the bus or ferry going to work I'm listening to the WNYC app on my iphone either live streaming or a podcast. When I go down in the subway I the app allows me to preload episodes to listen when there is no cell service. 99% of the time when I'm posting on the WBF it's playing on the radio section of itunes.

Some of my favorite shows are

Freakonomics
Here's the thing
Marketplace
The Moth
On the Media
Radiolab
Science Friday
Studio 360
Ted Radio Hour
All things Considered
Ask Me Another
The Brian Lehrer
Food Friday
Fresh Air
Leonard Lopate
This American Life
Wait Wait Don't Tell Me


Shows I avoid

New Sounds
The News From Lake Wobegon

Shows I can't stand and I Immediately change the station as fast as humanly possible without crashing the car.
