Show #5 is in the bag

I've posted show #005. Enjoy!

Today we talk about Geocaching, what it is, what the word means and where it came from.
I found some really interesting articles on how the DoE is dealing with the problem of buried nuclear waste that has a half life of about 10,000 years.
I talk a little bit about the film Lucky Number Slevin (if you haven't seen it go rent it now!).
I play a song by Beth Quist from the Magnatune label.
I finish out the show with a mini-rant on driving and courtesy.

  • I've been asked if there was a particular incident that "inspired" my talk about traffic.

    Not really.

    It's an ongoing issue I have with drivers on the road these days.

    If most of the drivers on the road today paid more attention and took a few minutes to be a little more polite, instead of being unobservant or downright rude, driving would be much less stressful in heavy traffic.
