This show is a real breath of fresh air and should be seen by all.
22 April 2007 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

This show is awesome. I am Canadian and simply as a great story teller Ira Glasser is awesome. I never heard the radio show and have since downloaded the volumes in their entirety to learn while working out/running/taking the bus/anything with the MP3 player... WICKED! WATCH IT!

Torrent Away.

After enjoying the first episode, the story of a man and his bull told more passionately and deeply than I could have ever imagined. I would recommend that everyone try and watch this show. by any means necessary. This show is available through various online sources.
