Farv, you made the right move not getting into the espresso machine game. I have a buddy who lives in Miami now who has two separate $5K+ espresso machines in his house that he actively uses and another $2K machine that he retired but didn't want to sell because reasons. We visited him and his wife for a few days last year and while I drank great espresso every day we were there I probably could have driven three blocks to the Cuban place by their house and gotten a good approximation for $2. Also, his wife makes her own espresso in one of those little stove top pots that cost $16 because he won't let her touch the machines. Not that big a difference.


Cheese - can we get some background on a guy who spends $12k on espresso machines and won't let his wife use them? My bro douche detector is turgid.


Right, he should be teaching her to use it so he doesn't ever have to. Kite knows just what I mean.


I have to keep it a buck in the year of a lord two thousand seventeen, blood. I have no idea what you mean.

Why are you listening to WGBH? Are you a hate watcher/listener like Balls and DTF?


kind of. my public radio gives me WGBH's mid-day news programs from 1-3.


"hi this is terri gross with fresh air..." followed by here and now with the woman who sounds like terri gross but isn't nearly as cool. and jeremy hobson.


i don't get fresh air. i get here and now and the takeaway. the takeaway drives me cray, mostly because of their ad. "We go to ALL the sources, the NYT, the Boston Globe, the Washington Post..." and i'm over here like "can you give me one piece of news that will please a southern white man...perhaps a minority was arrested for larceny or something"


Maybe your local community should support an institution other than the Gamecocks. Then you can have all the programming a Southern Bro could ever listen to on NPR.

Actually that's a decent ass...Yokel, please put Smart Yokel in the driver's seat and have him give us the top 5 shows you've always wanted on NPR.

they'd all just be the quiz shows from Saturday mornings except the very first day of yokel programming would start with a quick 30 second explanation that Paula Poundstone will no longer be appearing as she has been summarily executed.

You Bet Your Garden is still and will always be the best NPR program. Fuck RadioLab, fuck TAL, fuck On Being - those are great, but they aren't YBYG.

The worst NPR program is Value This, followed by Zorba Paster on Your Health.

That is during Weekend Edition, which i had on the list at one point but replaced with Car Talk. Another thing i really like in weekend edition is the 10 minute sports short they do.

I am fascinated by the amount of NPR that is consumed by this board (or at least you two).

I just had a conversation about this at a Christmas party. I mentioned that I had never listened to an NPR program in my life and they were all aghast.
