Amazing radio

Pointer to a piece of amazing radio: This American Life, episode 294.

Musician Kristy Krüger talks about how she went to college, and realized that she was—I’ll put it bluntly, picking words carefully—astoundingly ignorant. That is, uneducated to the level of thinking that World War I happened before the Salem Witch Trials, and never having heard of Henry Kissinger.

Then there’s a piece about rock librarians. Locking kids into the library after hours, playing loud rock music, and having bands perform live on top of the reference desk. I think Mia needs to get in on that.
