    Back when he was starring as a teddy bear on a WB married with children wannabe, who would have predicted bobcat goldthwait as NPR regular?

    The Gottfried episode of Norm's show was, in particular, full of cringe-worthy laughs.

    Some of my favorites:
    Baseball Prospectus' Effectively Wild
    The Dave Ramsey Show (just his daily radio show about finances)
    West Wing Weekly
    The Axe Files (politics)
    The Rosenthal & Jeselnik Vanity Project (NFL mixed with inappropriate humor)

    This American Life did a podcast on fat women a couple of weeks ago.
    Holy crap, the batshit crazy was turned all the way up to 11.

    TAL is a radio show that releases broadcasts as podcasts.

    That was an excellent show. The second segment was some of the best radio I've ever heard.

    The woman in the second story was insane!!

    She used to be fat, then lost 100 pounds. She didn't get dates when she was fat. After she lost weight and found a husband, she recorded herself berating him because he wouldn't have dated her when she was fat .

    Side note: a former classmate of mine had 15 minutes of fame a few years ago when she became a rather strident advocate for the glory of obesity. I think she thought it was brave and empowering. From a distance it was a very sad thing to watch. I checked the "This American Life" transcript to see if she was one it, but she wasn't.

    Sane or not, it was fascinating.

    Dick Enberg has a new podcast called The Sound of Success. I'm listening to him interview Vin Scully at the moment. It's more Q&A than conversational, but I love hearing his voice again.

    Is that the one where the woman "came out" as fat?

    All I remember is one segment with Lindy West, the writer, talking about the comments she receives online about being fat. Another segment was a girl who lost a lot of weight and was now getting dates and she felt guilty about it. She lost a bunch of weight and a guy in her apartment building ask her on a date and said he had never seen her before even though she lived in the apartment for years. She was invisible to guys as a fat chick.
