Podcast Recommendation: The Archers

Pop culture

Slate's June Thomas mentioned The Archers on Twitter recently, so I downloaded a few episodes and very quickly became addicted. It's a long-running BBC radio soap set in a village in England, and it's thoroughly enjoyable. There are 13-minute episodes six days a week, and an extensive Web site with summaries, family trees, and more. Just be careful when you get excited and start telling your friends about how someone was learning to make yogurt, and someone else was making a meat pie, and it was all SO DRAMATIC, because they're not going to get it.

Huh, I thought I already left a comment here. Maybe it got eaten. Anyway -- thank you SO MUCH for recommending The Archers! I am enthralled. Someone has a clogged washing machine filter!

The first episode I heard was last Sunday's. It starts out with Josh and Jamie taking photos of the heifer, and they were teasing each other in such a natural, boyish way that I was hooked immediately.
