Take this walk!

I've been listening to the pocasts of Shanks Mare, Ella McSweeney's self-produced weekly radio program on RTE, Radio 1, and loving how it takes my mind away from walking in New York City and into the quiet treasures of Ireland's wilderness. Her genuine curiousity in the people and places she visits is clear in her expressive, mellifluous voice. Ms. McSweeney is able to bring out the best from everyone she interviews, eliciting very straight-forward scientific and historical information by asking sensible questions with charm. She has hosted and produced other scientific programs for the BBC and RTE, all of which are worth your while.
