We were as bald as pharoahs

Last night was the first episode of This American Life - the tv show. If you're unfamiliar with the NPR radio show, you've got catching up aplenty to do, mister. Wikipedia says:

TAL, hosted by Ira Glass, is primarily a journalistic non-fiction program, although it has also featured essays, memoirs, field recordings, short fiction, and found footage.

It's the number one podcast on iTunes, has been for ages. I love the show, listen for archived episodes at their website. My all time favourite story is where Sarah Vowell talks about her night as a goth - because I'm too good to you, I've found it for you, go here immediately. Also, my friend Cassidy bumped into Ira Glass in Chicago recently and confirmed that he is, indeed, "way dreamy".

So anyway, the TV version of TAL debuted last night on Showtime, and fortunately, the network had the good idea of putting the episode up on their website, so check it out.
