Week 4 Listening

As part of your posting this week, check in with discussions of your recent podcast listening.

In the last week I have picked up listening to The West Wing Weekly, an episode-by-episode discussion about the series The West Wing.  This was a show I loved and love, despite some of Aaron Sorkin’s highly problematic writing tendencies.  I like the podcast very much, and one of the reasons is the ability of the hosts to offer meaningful, compelling anecdotes and analysis in a very conversational manner.  There is a good deal of preparation that goes into this conversational flow, to avoid the meandering, stumbling discussion that goes along with less-structured podcasts, and it also no doubt involves very clean editing.

Also, the In The Dark team learned this week that they were renewed for a second season.
