      "Unbroken" was recommended to me over the weekend. Apparently I am the only person in the entire universe who hasn't read it. It was also made into a movie I had never heard of.

      How about podcasts, is anyone listening to podcasts these days? I have an app on my phone that will let me listen to podcasts while I'm walking Lark or walking on a treadmill or cooking, pretty much anything that isn't too noisy. I can also play them through my computer so I can do some serious time-wasting doing crossword puzzles and listening to a podcast while waiting for the laundry to need some attention or the chicken to finish roasting. They're all free, or at least the ones I listen to all are and run anywhere from maybe 20 minutes to an hour- very convenient for walking a dog IMO.

      I haven't been listening too long yet so I'm still finding potential ones to listen to. So far I've enjoyed This American Life, one called Serial about a kid in Baltimore accused and imprisoned for allegedly killing his ex-girlfriend, one called Terrible, Thanks for Asking, my sister recommended the Sex, Death and Money podcasts. Any of you listen to podcasts and have any to recommend?

      Being a soccer fan, I love the Men in Blazers podcast. It’s informative and also very entertaining.

      Well, this thread has been neglected for a while, so let's see if anyone has some recommendations for reading and listening.

      I listen to a lot of books on CD while driving 6-8 hours to visit the grands or go to the beach, and my latest very favorite has been The Best Cook in the World by Rick Bragg. He talks about his momma and his momma's people, growing up in the south before, during and after the Depression, and the meals and foods they prepared and ate. He talked his mother into sharing some of her recipes and they are a major part of the book. The dishes are woven into his narrative and then he tells how his momma says to prepare them. Butter rolls. What you'll need. How to cook it.

      I listened to it on CD and Rick Bragg narrated it himself, which for me adds a welcome touch. My dad grew up in rural West Virginia and I think a lot of the intuitive, no recipe, raise it yourself and prepare it type plain cooking was probably how his mother/grandmother/aunts cooked. I was 9 or 10 when my grandmother died and I can't recall her ever cooking anything but I know she had a taste for groundhog and snapping turtle and grew up in a family of 8 kids in the Appalachians, so somewhere back there must be some cooks like Bragg's momma. I'm not sure I'll be preparing a turkey the way his mother did, rubbed with oil and salt with a full pound of butter put inside the cavity and roasted "until it's done" but I did enjoy the story.
