Fantastic. So sad.

Really. This is one of those things I here and want everybody to here. So great! two down, eight to go. Even though fifty more need to hear it. Really, this is the type of thing I hear and think, "wow, everybody I know and liike and respect NEEDS to hear this."

Great episode. Another must hear is the episode they did about the Gitmo inmates (http://www.thislife.org/Radio_Episode.aspx?sched=1185). I've listened to that one about 4 times.

That was a heartbreaker. The man was alternately a good guy and a complete asshole. But in the end, he was just a sad, bitter man.

Thankfully, his children seem to have all grown up to be strong, and independent.

Thanks for posting the link.

That's about 99% of them, so that should keep you busy for a while.

emailed myself the link so i can listen to it tonight.

and as an added bonus, while subscribing to the podcast (which I've been meaning to do for a while now) I found Car Talk, which I think had previously been pay only and now appears to be FREE!

Yay NPR and Yay Click and Clack!

Have you seen the movie The Road to Guantanamo yet? I highly recommend that you check it out if you haven't.

I listened to 24 hours at the Golden Apple again today. Then a cool one about superpowers and this chick who religiously trained herself into becoming a superhero.

I listened to this one a few weeks ago. I have never wanted to reach through the radio and punch someone like I did the dad on this story.

I finally got to listen to the whole thing. That was pretty incredible radio right there. It really hit me because as someone who considers himself both an artist and a family man I can't comprehend how anyone could treat their children in such a way. I don't think it's that hard to follow your dreams and keep your commitment to your family. The end really nails it home when they say the father saw his families as an excuse as to why he wasn't the success he wants to be.

I am definitely going to be listening to more of these. Thanks for posting this. :)
