    Since I’m a nonstop NPR listener, I’ve always wondered WHY I’ve never heard of your show except on your website. Now that I’ve seen the list of stations state-by-state that carry your show, I can see why! It’s available only in Spokane, and I can’t get it.

    I will try to hook up to the podcast. The only problem is that I have no idea how to get podcasts off my iPod once they’re on there, and old podcasts are using up all my space! This is what I get for being a Luddite, a total cripple when it comes to technology. I have a feeling I’m not alone, though.
