Ever wondered what life might be like as a pelican? Of course you have--that was a stupid question. Well, Leftdial_ChristinaCinaj (real name?) called the Vocalo hotline to tell us what it's like. You may want to draw a bubble bath before you listen to this one:
From Vocalo contributor Grok Science comes this discussion with linguist Daniel Everett about the nature of language, amazonian tribes, and losing faith in God, remixed by The Factory.
Working in the media is all about the intangible perks. Vocalo radio host Brian Babylon experienced one of them last week when SNL alum Joe Piscopo sang Happy Birthday to him as Frank Sinatra. No. Big. Deal.‚ You can hear the full interview here.
Happy birthday, Jesus!
Christianity Today's Skye Jathani gives Vocalo host Brian Babylon a little context for one of the oddest stories from the New Testament: Jesus going postal on the temple money changers. Turns out ‚ there's more to it than meets the eye.

We get a lot of complaints from listeners for not making The Moth Radio Hour a permanent part of our schedule. People- we love the enthusiasm, but it doesn't even exist as a regular show yet! Save the outrage until then!
This is a golden day at the WBEZ blog. The organization is welcoming former Sun-Times media columnist Robert Feder to our 0n-line community. He will be writing exclusively for us on all things Chicago media.
Every Monday morning, I join Brian Babylon on Vocalo.org to rant about the week's Bears game. Since this week was their bye week, I watched really crappy NFC North football and of course, Kyle Orton. And I couldn't help but root against him.
