Al Green & BBC Podcasts Go

I have to do a lot of driving for work between Atlanta and a little town called Americus in southwest Georgia (about a 2.5-3hr drive). The perfect antidote to the long drives for an information craving nerd like myself has been podcasts by the BBC which you can download to your computer or ipod/mp3 player off their website. The BBC is just plain better in terms of their comprehensive news coverage compared to anything the US mainstream media puts out. Plus, my colonized eurocentric brain tells me those british accents make anything sound more classy and refined! They could be talking about a bag of booboo and I’d probably still be listening. Also, the new Al Green album, Lay It Down, produced by ?uestlove of the Roots and James Poysner, goes hard as well. The Reverand Al is back to his soulful basics, and sounds great.
