bbc news

January 6, 2008


thanks to paulus suggesting that i listen to the bbc news podcasts a couple months ago i was occupied as i lay in bed last night nauseous and not able to sleep.

yesterday we got together with some friends and went out to eat at t.g.i. fridays, and i was not alright after that meal. i was awake into the wee hours of the morning trying to stay very, very still and not puke. my mp3 player was on the nightstand, and out of sheer luck i had downloaded the bbc podcast earlier hoping that i would have time to listen to it.

the bbc is fantastic, they are so much more comprehensive and so much less bias than american news. the bbc has so many news programs to choose from and download, i have been listening to the news highlights almost everyday at lunchtime, it sure beats trying to catch up on google news or the bbc news website. i used to watch the bbc world news on public television, but since we moved here the reception for the springfield station is terrible, and cptv does not run it. npr is not quite sufficient, they do run bbc news updates throughout the day, and have decent news and talk, but nothing as detailed as the bbc. i’ve been listening to “global news” and “best of today” as much as i can. i can’t wait to download “music week,” looks like it could be fun. thanks paulus.

    Could it have been the fried green beans churning in your stomach?
