The Weekend Listen

I listen to a lot of podcasts while driving, working out, and doing chores around the house. In this weekly feature, I’ll tell you about one episode I particularly enjoyed that week.

My pick for this week is Nerdette’s episode Tom Hanks and Typewriters: A Love Story.  Apparently Tom Hanks collects typewriters.  In this podcast, he shares his knowledge and love of them and all their anachronistic glory.  It’s quirky, endearing, and entertaining.

Should you desire something a little more educational, might I suggest Civics 101?  Episode 3 explains the notice-and-comment element of federal regulatory rule making, which is one way citizens can have an impact on policy (and something of which I would guess most Americans are unaware).

Happy listening!

Is there a podcast you think I should be following? Let me know in the comments, send me an email, or tweet using #LexListens.
