I just won a Green 8GB Zune! There was an internal contest at Microsoft and one of the prizes was a Zune. It’s very cool! I’ve created a profile on the Zune Social network; my tag is MS Synergist. I’ve configured my profile so that anyone can see what I’m listening to. I got turned on to Nelly Furtado a few months ago by Lee at Universal Music Group and I love her music. One of the podcasts that came with the Zune was from the This American Life radio show that I listen to on NPR. It was a story entitled “Squirrel Cop” that I had heard before but I always loved listening to. Hearing that, prompted me to go to the Podcasts section of the Zune Marketplace and subscribe to a few other podcasts like Real Time with Bill Mahr, NPR, Nova, and Scientific American. A few years ago, I heard the radio drama of a play, the Accidental Death of an Anarchist, by Dario Fo. It had me in laughing out-loud it was so funny. I would love to find that as an audio file to put on my Zune. If anyone knows where I can find that, I’d love to hear.
What have you found in your music/podcast browsing that turned you on? I have a feeling that I’ll be hearing a lot more from Ice Cube in the upcoming months….
