Laughing at Seattle's Homeowners

For your listening pleasure this morning and perhaps your commute home later this afternoon, TJ Martinell has a good podcast about leaving Seattle to live in the Cascades.  It also includes meeting a dog who loves to go hiking and the importance of giving up your smart phone to re-connect with real people in the real world.  You can find that episode here.

Also, TJ put together the first in a series on the history of the James Bond films.  He got everything right, except that Goldfinger is NOT "gimmicky" but is in fact the best James Bond film ever.  Of course, Mr. Martinell is a younger man and thus prone to being wrong, but it was a good history lesson on Ian Flemming, Sean Connery, and how President Kennedy helped bring the James Bond films into reality.

Finally, if you're looking for something a bit more crass for your listening pleasure may I recommend The Greasy Pole hosted by The Great One Himself and Gentleman Adventurer Adam Piggott.  Depending on who you want to give the traffic to you can download it from The Great One's site or Adam Piggott's site.  I'm still debating who to promote more based on gifts and favors they've given me.  At least The Great One has provided me lodging in the past.  Mr. Piggott however has only mocked and ridiculed me for liking Irish Spring soap, of which my fragile feelings are still trying to recover from.

Sorry in my book there is only one 'Great One' -- Jackie Gleason. But hey I show my age.

As to Irish Spring soap. If you are talking the original bar; yep a great soap. The derivatives, meh, not so much.

here in Canada, "The Great One" only refers to Wayne Gretzky.
