Podcasts

So as many of you know I have one of the most boring jobs on the planet. I am a horticulture technician. In less glamorous words I water peoples' house plants. I drive around in my car all day and when I'm not in my car I'm wandering around businesses with my awesome tool belt and watering cans. Despite what "Music and Lyrics" portrays about plant waterers, I have never met anyone famous or helped write a hit song. In fact i dont really talk to anyone and no one really talks to me. You would think that day after day alone in my car or alone in an office full of people I would start going crazy or be really sad about my life....BUT not so!!! I have PODCASTS.
Josh and Chuck from "Stuff You Should Know" and Jad and Robert from "RadioLab" are always with me. They keep me company at all times. They entertain me for hours on end. They fill my head with random facts ranging from zombie attacks to sleep walking to love to organ donation. I always find myself saying," I was listening to a podcast about that just the other day..."
Up to this point I have listened to 57 RadioLab episodes totaling 1.6 days and 266 Stuff You Should Know episodes totaling 4.4 days. I have enjoyed every minute of it. It turned my hopelessly boring job into an outlet for me to listen to podcasts!

I've been meaning to get some of those on my iPod too. Our local radio station always plays "Something you should know" I think they are great.
