The first day of Spring is here! Are you having spring-like weather where you are? We might be getting a little sun now but it’s been cloudy all day.
Anne and Michael discuss a very Massachusetts sort of thing: Patriots’ Day, the commemoration of the battles of Lexington and Concord, the beginning of the American Revolution. Some people know a little bit about this history, some people think they know and others know nothing at all. You, yourself will know where you fall after listening to this show. Also: Gun violence in this country is out of control, The Boston Marathon, Ralph Waldo Emerson, Pinterest and some Garrison Keillor. Plus: Listener Letters™ and News From the Dunes™.
Anne and (the lovely and talented) Michael spend some quality time talking about how you should NOT introduce yourself, the welcome appearance of spring, the Icelandic volcano messing up Europe and stuff about the new season of Glee. Also, Anne makes Michael take a time out for bad behavior, Jay-Z brings a lawsuit against Big Papi, Crystal Bowersox almost quits American Idol, Charles gets a free ride home after walking over 1300 miles and a cookbook recipe with a rather odd ingredient. Plus, why do so-called food providers associate themselves with diseases? Ick.
