Two hour dental appointment tomorrow morning ...what should I load into my iPod to listen to while he goes at it? I must stay calm and be thoroughly distracted by headphones. I'm thinking really interesting podcasts rather than music. Which ones?
Unfinished Sweet - Alice Cooper

Mefi has a podcast now, or so I hear.

I haven't listened to it, of course. I don't support trawling for whales.

oh yeah, the Coldchef one was golden, I'll fetch that for a relisten.

Fresh Air podcasts are good.

Thanks Lipstick Thespian, but music won't be able to make me 'focus away' methinks, must have spoken word stuff that I have to site and listen attentivly to. Thanks monkeybutter.

Got some metafilter ones I hadn't heard yet.

This American Life is pretty consistently entertaining.

Podcasts I listen to:

Leading Edge Parenting on iTunes and BlogTalk Radio.

Parenting for Humanity

(I know you are a parent, dabitch, or I wouldn't have recommended these.)

NPR has tons of podcasts.

Talk of the Nation has a podcast. I have been meaning to download this.

ossom, thanks. My podcasts are downloaded. I think I'm reading. (Heading off for really nervous sleep now)

I messed up a link: Parenting for humanity

Good luck, dabitch.

Too late, but Wait Wait Don't Tell Me is always the first of the downloaded podcasts I listen to each week. Dan Savage is next.

Grinder, by Judas Priest. Actually, the whole British Steel album should go well with most dental work.

The Ghost of Bobby Dunbar is a fascinating TAL episode that will keep you engrossed for the entire hour.

aaaaaack, that was hell but i look so purdy now. :) Hey danf, I couldn't move around much so I managed to get "wait wait don't tell me" on and stay put when the pain suddenly became very owie-can't-deal and their humorous banter and quizzes on the news was a really good diversion when I thought I couldn't take it no more, so thanks!

Now I'll return to drinking through a straw. But I flash a killer smile. :)
