tripping from LV to SLO

Today I drove home to SLO from Las Vegas. When I left LV I was listening to a Sherlock Holmes radio drama. Following that, I heard:

- Interview with Wilbert Rideau, author of In the Place of Justice, memoir about 44 years in prison, on Fresh Air (NPR). I want the book now.
- Part of a Ted Talk featuring a strange singer (I switched after a bit) (see ted.com for the fascinating collection of these talks)
- A podcast of a guy talking about his obsession with Soren Kierkegaard, complete with his visit to Denmark to talk to a Kierkegaard expert about the religious stage (I really liked this)
- Repeat of a podcast from This American Life (replayed on Public Radio Exchange - prx.org) by a young woman whose bf broke up with her, leaving her with the desire to write a torch song about it. She interviews Phil Collins about how to write one and then works with some musician friends to get a melody. Kinda cute. Called "Dr. Phil".
- Podcast by a hospice nurse, talking about death and about a book he has written about - death. He found that people need to know what to expect.
- Radio play from 1945, starring Jimmy Stewart - The Vivacious Woman, I think it was called. Not much of a plot.

and more I can't recall right now. I should take notes sometimes.
