Podcast?

Some people have urged me to start a podcast; in particular, one fellow showed me an app the other day such that there is now no practical obstacle to my doing this at once.

Let me know your thoughts!

That would be exactly the wrong response.

Delilah: Radio Host Talks About Why Her Show Is so Successful

I’ve never heard of this woman before. She and I appear to be on the same wavelength.

If only that were more than a pun!

Update, 2014-06-13:

A follower has advised that the link seems to point to an interview with Michelle Kwan.

The restrictions on videos on web pages here at the library are such I normally ignore them, and count on people just reading the text.  For the video interview with Delilah one wants to click on this image:

“Don’t blame college kids for intolerance. Blame us.”

Don’t blame college kids for intolerance. Blame us.

One gets the impression from Matt Bai’s article that closed-mindedness is something new.

I think first of a quotation from Jeff Snyder, from 1993:
