I was riveted by the Fresh Air interview of the author of Singular Woman, a biography of Barack Obama's mother. First off, I didn't know that she had met Barack Obama Sr and her second husband at the University of Hawaii. Sad as it is, it's thrilling to find my alma mater as setting for such a story. Also, she seems to have been quite a fascinating woman. I think I want to read the book.
I also listened to Andy Borowitz's humorous telling of his scary brush with death on The Moth and died laughing at "ileostomy propaganda." I love deadpan delivery.
I am leaving for a trip to Japan next week and had planned on trying to catch Sekai-ichi Hatsukoi on TV, but looking at the rather long list of broadcasters on the website made me realize I have no idea how to find out if/when/what channel the cities I am in will air it. ;_;
