*The Three of Us*

So a few months ago, there was this great episode of This American Life called "The Break-up" in which contributor Starlee Kine wrote a break-up song for her ex-boyfriend (inspired by none other than Phil Collins!).  

I cannot get this song out of my head.  I sing it in the shower, while I'm doing the dishes, and even very quietly while I'm walking in the grocery store.  Dan sings along, too.  

It was a great episode, anyhow.  You should listen to it in the archives.  Starlee is funny.  

And while we're on the subject of This American Life, one of my fellow Warren-Wilsonites, Rachel Howard, was on the show last week talking about the unsolved murder of her father. 

And yes, I will continue to plug This American Life until everyone I know is a dedicated listener.  And RadioLab.  And Radio West.  I listen to these shows while I'm stocking the bread at Trader Joe's in the morning.  I have come to love those three precious hours of the morning before the outspoken but lovable Bostonians come shopping when I can listen to my favorite podcasts and make sure we have enough Ezekiel bread and Tuscan Pane for the masses.
