Or so I thought

I love this show. It has led me on to many other podcasts that I also love. However I was blown away by the live show in Brooklyn which I watched on their website, rather than listened too. Ira Glass brings stories to life, in a way I don't understand. He's a magical story teller.

The goto podcast in America

I do enjoy TAL immensely.

A lot of episodes are repeated, but some are great to listen to again and maybe a third time. But I'm not sure I can listen to the Tom the Turkey story again...

But David Sedaris, love me some David Sedaris. He's just great.

Subscribe if you haven't already.

Love it.
