I am an insomniac* and as such I leave a playlist of podcasts running all night on a pillow speaker so as to keep myself from pondering my looming mortality, while not keeping my wife awake. These are links to selected episodes of some of my favorite podcasts.
COMEDY: Dumb People Town
Dumb People Town is a hilarious riff-style podcast featuring The Sklar Brothers and selected guests. They find odd items from the news and uh, deconstruct them. Last night I heard one that featured a bodybuilder who plans to marry his robotic sex doll despite the fact that they frequently argue. What an age we live in!

COMEDY: The Johnny Carson Show Podcast
The Johnny Carson Show podcast features highlights from the show. The episode I listened to last night had a monologue about the hoopla over the upcoming Royal Charles and Di wedding. Then Jimmy Stewart read a poem he had written about a dog he had that died, as dogs do. It almost made me cry.
