I listen to podcasts, so I search for new, different, and fun content.

I found a new one called: DINNER PARTY podcast at the ITUNES STORE. It's from some people in Southern California and it's designed to prep you for attending a dinner party. It tells you a joke you might tell later to your dinner mates, a little history lesson, a little about a mixed drink and whatever else they can stuff into about ten minutes. Here is the web page with the necessary click to get it onto your Ipod if you so desire.
