In 2008, residents of Seattle began to hear a very different kind of radio program on their AM dial, for three hours every weeknight. That show was Too Beautiful To Live
. Much of the joy of the program is getting to know the hosts, and discovering whether or not the show survives, so I won't spoil it for you. You can start by listening to the First Show
, or enter any weekday since Jan. 7, 2008, into the "Browse by date:" search box on the First Show webpage. If that's not enough motivation to start listening, here are some favorite episodes: Interview with John Hodgman
, Interview with Garfunkel and Oates
, Interview with Wil Wheaton
, Ross Dress for Less
, Broke as a Joke in Seattle
, Drunk People are So
, Interview with S.E. Hinton
, Interview with Adam Carolla.

Are you, like many others this summer, considering avoiding the costs & hassles of pricey foreign or domestic travel by having a "staycation
" at home? Daily Show commenter John Hodgman (ably backed by Jonathan Coulton on the strings) enumerates the benefits of a "Holistay"
(much better name) to help you make your choice.
