Ladies and gentlemen, everything seems to be going my way. I just took a break from editing the Diary of a Mad Filmmaker birthday festivities in which I finally announce that “big news” I’ve been holding back, and found out that this is the day I have been waiting for since iTunes began supporting podcasts a year ago: the fantastic radio show This American Life JUST STARTED PODCASTING.
In my opinion, TAL is the best show on radio today, but unfortunately I have never really internalized local radio schedules, even less so now that I’m in Minnesota, so I am constantly missing this fantastic program. But now I can have it delivered right to my computer every week! I can tell that I’m not alone in being excited about this, because even though as of this evening their feed contains only a fifteen-second test clip promising a new show on Monday, it is already the most popular podcast on iTunes.
