Listen to this!

I'm so excited to start this new series. I plan to blog my top five shows each week...podcast/public radio-wise. For anyone who knows me "in real life," they can attest that I am a bit of a NPR/podcast-aholic.

I want this series to be almost like a weekly digest--the best of the week.

So...this week if you need something to listen to while folding laundry, I suggest clicking the following little purple links:

"The High Cost of Cheap Fashion" On Point with Tom Ashbrook -- June 6, 2012 Interview with Elizabeth Cline, author of the new book Overdressed: The Shockingly High Cost of Cheap Fashion

 "'Obama's Secret Wars' Against America's Threats" Fresh Air with Terry Gross -- June 4, 2012 Interview with David Sanger, who has written a new book about Obama's approach to foreign policy.

"There's No Such Thing as a Sold-Out Concert (Even for Justin Bieber)" All Things Considered -- June 4, 2012

"Assessing Consumer Concerns About the Meat Industry" Fresh Air with Terry Gross -- June 7, 2012 Interview with Tom Philpott, agricultural journalist for Mother Jones

"An Exploration of Strange Creatures" NPR Pop Culture Happy Hour -- June 8, 2012 This is always a must-listen, but I particularly enjoyed this week's episode...mainly due to the mention of Carly Rae Jepsen.

So, there you have it!

I'll be back next Friday with five more links--happy listening!
