Win Louis CK Tickets from The Sound of Young America!

This week, Louis CK will be doing two surprise shows at Cobb's Comedy Club in San Francisco. That's right. Wednesday night and Thursday night, Louie will be sharing his unique standup voice with all of us non-geniuses.

For those of you unfamiliar with his work, he's written for Conan O'Brien, the Chris Rock Show, TV Funhouse, The Dana Carvey Show, and more, in addition to his upcoming HBO sitcom "Lucky Louie."

How can you win tickets to Wednesday night's show, courtesy of Louie, me, and the good folks at Cobb's? Add a comment to this post with your real email address and your real name. I'll pick a winner randomly Monday at midnight. That winner and a guest get free tickets to see Louie!

(If you hate the idea of putting your name and email out there, you can email that info to me with Louis CK in the subject; make sure you still add a comment below with some distinguishing characteristic referenced in the email. I need the name and email to get you your tickets.)

One Year of Podcasting!

I wrote a press release to congratulate myself on a full year of podcasting...

A year ago, The Sound of Young America became the first public radio show west of the Mississippi to podcast. Since then, it has counted over a quarter million program downloads, expanding its reach from three small radio stations (in Santa Cruz, San Francisco, and Hattiesburg, Mississippi) to a broad crossection of the world. Now, the show and its producer/host, Jesse Thorn, are considering how to transform a credit-card financed non-commercial venture into a long-term sustainable media enterprise.

Check out the full press release...

Best book ever?

Official Winter Olympics Skill Sport of The New Sincerity

Biathlon is a great sport for people who are in the military forces of Scandinavian countries. Which kind of makes it just like every other sport in the Winter Olympics.

This sport is particularly suitable if you are in the military in a Scandinavian country. In that sense, it's a lot like the rest of the Winter Olympics.
