If you love “Radiolab” and “This American Life” like I do, you will love “The Memory Palace”. In the words of iTunes: “Short, surprising stories of the past, sometimes heartbreaking, sometimes hysterical, always super-great.”

Sometimes being so far from Madison and the Midwest is rough. This Sunday the Underground Food Collective is having their last spring dinner at Madison Sourdough. It will be an amazing time and the food will be out of this world.

This album is usually on as I am having my first cup of coffee and collecting myself before beginning my day at work.
