Joe Frank, radio hero, has passed away.

quote [ Joe Frank, who stretched the boundaries of radio storytelling with mind-bending, absurdist monologues often fueled by his neuroses and his dark view of the world, died on Monday in Beverly Hills, Calif. He was 79. ]

Joe Frank made some of the best radio I've heard. His delivery and creativity put him in a class of creators that I'm just glad enough other people like that he got to continue doing it.

Call Your Rep

quote [ What you say matters! Before you call your rep, we can help find something to say! You can enter search terms like "immigration" and "gun control" below. Otherwise, we'll show the latest and most popular topics! ]

My friend made this and it's REALLY good and makes it easy to call your representatives. He even foots the bill for your call time. Call widely, share widely!

Harry Potter and the Methods of Rationality

quote [ So not only is the wizarding economy almost completely decoupled from the Muggle economy, no one here has ever heard of arbitrage. The larger Muggle economy had a fluctuating trading range of gold to silver, so every time the Muggle gold-to-silver ratio got more than 5% away from the weight of seventeen Sickles to one Galleon, either gold or silver should have drained from the wizarding economy until it became impossible to maintain the exchange rate. ]

A little late, but I just started listening to the podcast presentation of this recently.
