My biggest fear with this podcast is that Scott will start picking the music. Lady Gaga mash-ups rule. Nine Inch Nails rules. I'm from Soviet Canuskistan so I wasn't familiar with the This American Life format, so it took me a few episodes to get it. I now love this podcast. It has replaced EconTalk as my favorite podcast. (I'm serious; I like economics.)

The background score is really good.. being homeless is really bad, and technically being homeless is real bad.
