It is entirely possible that I walk (an occasionally run) in order to have an excuse to listen to podcasts. The Story is an American Public Radio show hosted by Dick Gordon. The stories they tell run from the serious (HIV in Namibia) to the absurd. Today, I heard an absurd one, the story of Bacon Salt. You can listen to it here. Basically, it's the story of a couple of guys who took one of those ideas you get in a bar an ran with it - right to Bacon Salt. Good entertainment.
