Sorry no art talk today just wanted to pass on an audio observation.
As I have stated before one of my favorite Podcast is Keith and the Girl. A short while ago Keith and the Girl had a 74 hour continuous running podcast to raise money for themselves, Asperges and be listed in the Guinness Book of Records.
Last week Keith and Chemda (the voices, producers & writers of Keith and the Girl) went on a trip to London and Israel and have been releasing parts of the 74 hour podcast while they travel.
Today I listened to episode 825 which contained a listener call who is in the military stationed in Bagdad. He is 21 years old and it was emotionally tough to listen to the "Gunner" talk what little he was able to say about life in Bagdad. He also mentioned that the troops were cut off from information and were not able to know what presidential candidates stood for or had plans to do if they were elected. In additional absentee ballots rarely arrive in time to be counted for the vote. This was a a surprise to me as I had assumed the military had some say in sending a message to their bosses.
