today’s wtf moment brought to you by diane rehm
August 19, 2010
I have a crush on an older woman. I mean, REALLY old, like 100 years old.
No, not Betty White. Not Cloris Leachman. Not THAT old.
Diane Rehm. Locally, her show is on NPR from 9-11am, weekdays, so I don’t catch the show, except for those very, very rare days when I’m late for work.
But her Friday News Roundup is awesome. And just this week, we had a show about Pakistan’s floods, the Taliban’s resurgence, government guaranteeing loans, the legal issues surrounding fertility, and a great interview with Roseanne Cash.
Oh, and today’s show. Bed Bugs.
Turns out, bed bugs are back. And they aren’t just the villains in a cute, coquetish way to say goodnight from Young Frankenstein.
I can’t explain it any better than show copy writer:
“They’re back! Bed bugs are infesting retail stores and offices as well as bedrooms. Diane and guests explore what’s behind the resurgence and what to do about it.”
You know what radio “driveway moments” are?
Well, keep looking.
