  • This American Life: A Very Special David Sedaris Christmas

    • UNABRIDGED (59 mins)
    • By This American Life

    One of our Christmas shows from previous years. Stories from David Sedaris' book of Christmas stories, Holidays on Ice, read onstage by David, Julia Sweeney and actor Matt Malloy. Taped in front of a live audience in Los Angeles. (Note that David's now-infamous story about working as an elf at Macy's Department store during the Christmas season is in our Christmas & Commerce show.)

    David says: "Not your average Christmas Carol"
    "Not your average Christmas Carol"

    A family tradition for us! If you're looking for a change from Miracle on 34th Street and another reading of The Night Before Christmas, AND you have a quirky sense of humor, this will enliven your holidays. David Sedaris is off beat and funny as usual, but the "Christmas Letter" is hilarious. This has been a must-play addition to our tree-trimming festivities for two years, and it will continue on into the future. Our 7 - 14 year old kids don't quite get it (it's not too racy but somewhat adult themed) but after a few rounds of Rudolph, this selection is a welcome break for the adults.

    "Run Old Radio Format"

    The Twilight Zone shows are really fun, especially if you are a fan of old-time radio shows. These aren't high-tech or cutting edge audio programs, but simple sci-fi themes reminiscent of radio and TV programs from the 1930's - 1960's. They are family friendly, so sit back and enjoy.

  • Naked

    • ABRIDGED (3 hrs and 4 mins)
    • By David Sedaris
    • Narrated By David Sedaris, Amy Sedaris

    Welcome to the hilarious, strange, elegiac, outrageous world of David Sedaris. In Naked, Sedaris turns the current mania for the memoir on its proverbial ear, mining the exceedingly rich terrain of his life, his family, and his unique worldview, a sensibility at once take-no-prisoners sharp and deeply charitable.

    Christine says: "My Favorite Sedaris"
    "Honest & Sincere"

    This is a collection of brutally honest autobiographical stories of David Sedaris' upbrining and life. We sometimes found ourselves wincing at his childhood accounts and then laughing the next moment at the author's way of finding the wry humor in otherwise disturbing events. My husband and I would look at each other and say, "Jeez, we thought OUR families were crazy. They were Ozzy and Harriet compared to this guy's family!" As always, his tales are sincere and humorous and perfectly delivered.

  • The Best American Erotica 2003 (Unabridged Selections)

    • UNABRIDGED (10 hrs and 42 mins)
    • By Susie Bright, Jill Soloway, Dorothy Allison
    • Narrated By Susie Bright, Amanda Karr, Stefan Rudnicki

    The 10th anniversary edition of The Best American Erotica includes the most esteemed and lascivious writers at work today. Dorothy Allison explores the wonderful, mysterious abilities of the human hand, and Zane's corporate tigress plays mind games that make other office shenanigans look like mere games of Candyland.

    Paula Beck says: "Disappointed"
    "Fun Stories to Pick and Choose From"

    This is a good collection of erotic stories. Not every story is to my taste so I just skip forward as desired. Some are hard core and others fairly tame. I agree that the stories begin and end abrubtly and would prefer a more recognizable gap between them. If you enjoy written erotica, this is worth a try.

    This is a great show for people interested in food and cooking as wellas people who enjoy travelogues.

She keeps the show moving along well so it's never boring.
