Have you ever seen a movie and later decided to watch it again with someone else? You tell them, "This is the greatest movie. You'll love it." Then while you are watching it together you come to that part you forgot about. You know what I'm talking about. It's the part you don't want to see while sitting next to your mom, or your 14 year old son, or your bishop. (All of which I've done.)
Well, I recommended The Moth podcast and the last 4 episodes I've listened to have had either explicit language or "adult themes." So, maybe I don't recommend it. I liked all your suggestions though. "Stuff You Should Know" is a great podcast and I also started listening to audiobooks. Thanks!

I drive around A LOT for my job. During this time I usually listen to NPR. But, I am so tired of all the talk about the election and economy. It used to be I could listen to varied and interesting shows like the woman who has a passion for growing melons. Or there was the one with the guy that plays his clarinet with whales.
Lately I have been listening podcasts. One that I recently discovered is The Moth. The Moth is a not-for-profit storytelling organization. The podcast features people telling true stories on stage without notes. Some of the stories have been featured on This American Life - another of my favorite podcasts. The other show that I podcast is Wait, Wait, Don't Tell Me.
The problem is that this only gives me about 2 1/2 hours of podcasts per week. Help! Can anyone recommend any others?

Last night Zach had one of those once in a lifetime games. He got the ball on 3 consecutive possessions and scored 3 consecutive touchdowns - in the first quarter! All three were on the first play of the possession - 79, 61 and 75 yards. His defensive squad was getting a little annoyed that he wasn't giving them much rest. Keep in mind that the opponent, Hillcrest is not the greatest team (2 and 2 for the season). Here's a link to some video that was on KSL. It shows his 3rd touchdown run. When you get to the page click on the Riverton - Hillcrest game link.

A lot of people have asked me to let them know when there is a game near them. Here's schedules for all our kids. As you can see, most of them are in Riverton or Sandy. But, there are a few scattered in other areas. No one is obligated to come, but if you do, let us know in case there's a change in location. Zach's schedule won't change. If you come to one of those games you can look for us on the 30 yard line.
