the grace of an eel


I've been meaning to listen to Terry Gross's interview with Stuart Murdoch [npr] all week, but have avoided it because I usually only listen to Fresh Air when I want to fall asleep in the span of zero to five minutes. Since I'm actually interested in hearing about Belle & Sebastian, this poses a problem.

As a remedy, I recorded the interview while I was doing dishes and converted it to a mp3 for morning commute listening on my iPod. In case you're also interested in having a more easily portable format, I've posted the mp3:
terry gross vs stuart murdoch.mp3 (56 MB)

I'll probably remove it in a week or so. They also have a full recording of a New Pornographers / Belle & Sebastian show at the 9:30 Club posted online [npr].


So when you convert that, are you going from RM to MP3? I've got an episode of This American Life that my gf wants me to hear, but it's in RM, and I don't fancy sitting at my PC for an hour. I'd love to be able to throw it on my iPod. Can you recommend a tool?
i used wiretap, a mac program that just records incoming audio in real time, like a tape recorder. I don't know of another way (I think that iFill) might work the same way, but slightly more automation.

for this american life, if you don't want to sit by your computer for an hour, just buy the episode online: either from audible.com or the itunes music store.
this is entirely unrelated to anything NPR and sleeping and ipods, but I thought that you should know that Scarecrow has the movie Funny Ha Ha on DVD. It is in the $2.50 for 4 day rental section in fact. I have it in my possession and will be watching it tonight. So there. Maybe you can find it while you are far away to watch...otherwise it will be waiting at scarecrow for you when you get back to the states.... Or, have you found it already and my taunting is pointless? - caroline
Lucky you! I knew that would happen! Of course, I'd already forgotten about my short term obsession with renting that DVD. I guess it will be easy to rent when I get back in April.
thank you for delicious-ing that, btw (as you might have seen i listened to it yesterday, and i probably would have missed it otherwise.)
I didn't notice -- I somehow usually manage to register the music/mood fields. But it was actually a pretty good interview. Despite her quirks, Terry Gross really always seems to have done her homework.
