Now that I finally have high-speed internet, I have been enjoying the free podcasts available on itunes. I listen to some npr shows (e.g., This American Life, Wait wait… don’t tell me- which is very funny) and a grammar/English language show (A way with words).
I also really enjoy some of the gardening podcasts, particularly one from the UK called The Alternative Kitchen Garden. I download the new episodes, drag them to my tiny mp3 player and listen while I run or garden. Ever since I listened to the comfrey episode, I’ve been dying to get some to add to my garden (apparently it is a good green compost).
Don’t know how we survived on measly dial-up for so long.
