This American Life with Ira Glass always seems to make me cry. No matter what, but I guess that's not really hard to do. Every podcast they pick a topic and do a few stories under that. This past week was "babysitting". So many stories, so awesome. Plus look how cute Ira is!
Stuff You Should Know from howstuffworks.com is amazing! This one basically picks a topic every week and tells you all about it! From ninjas to how dogs perceive time. I now know so much information thats to this. Sunday I learned about high fructose corn syrup. Um... yuck. From this podcast I found the story of Howard Dully. At the age of 12 Dully received a transorbital lobotomy and luckly he lived to tell the story of how it has changed his life. This story is totally awesome. You can find out all about it here at NPR, or he wrote a book titled My Lobotomy. There is also a podcast of it, just search "my lobotomy" or "howard dully" should work also.
Dully getting the lobotomy! I can't believe that they got a picture of it. How horrible these were. You should definitely listen to the podcast about lobotomies.
I need this book!
Ah the life of a nerd. I love it.
