Don't you just love when you have two not-ideal situations, and you figure out a way to solve both in one swell foop? The first problem was that I never have time to listen to NPR anymore, so I subscribe to several of their RSS feeds and then download the podcasts of all the stories and features that sound interesting. Trouble is, I never have time to listen to those either! The other problem was that I was bored listening to just music for 30 minutes while on the elliptical trainer at the gym; I don't like TV and I don't think I'm coordinated enough to read while exercising (at least not yet). So . . . you guessed it! I downloaded all those lonely NPR podcasts to my iPod, and today my 30-minute interval course went by like nothing because I was so interested in what I was listening to!
