This Post Isn't About Boo!

I felt I had to warn Boo's grandmas and anyone else who thinks posting something on this blog that doesn't have to do with Boo is a criminal act. :)
My brother-in-law introduced me to This American Life from Chicago and National Public Radio. When I'm working at my desk, I love to stream past episodes. Or, sometimes I download the latest episode and play it on my ipod. Anyway, a couple of weeks ago, they did a story about inmates at a St. Louis prison putting on a production of Hamlet. It was amazing!

I'm shouting this out to my English major friends, my sister in St. Louis (who is also an English major), Spennie, Cath my most famous actor friend and anyone else.
Let me know what you think!

I am obsessed with TAL. I never miss a week---I believe it is some of the best reporting out there.

I actually happened to be out doing errands that day and heard most of the program in the car. I thought it was really powerful! I had never thought of Hamlet from that perspective. (I missed the part where they said the prison was in St. Louis though--cool!)
Thanks for sharing!
