Did you catch this?

Monolithic Progenitor!

A decade in, podcasts are still operating in the shadow of two monolithic progenitors. The first, This American Life, launched a hundred imitators looking to ape its thoughtful tone and slice of life realism. Even nonfiction podcasters coloring outside the lines TAL drew use Iraís sense of story structure and ever≠-pleasant intonation. The second, The Best Show with Tom Scharpling, set a standard for elaborate comic routines and cranky commentary thatís echoed by every comedy podcast in its wake. Both shows were truly groundbreaking when they started, but these days they donít sound so noisy. They sound normal. And so does everyone else.

I found the paragraph over at this place:
"Like it or not, Florida seems dedicated to a 'live fast, die' way of doing things."

They are both radio shows... or were.

Also, Ira Glass' "America" is phony baloney, Newbridge on the other hand is as real as it gets.
