Welcome back. No, I can’t say that the world is all better now. Not even close. But we’d still like to offer you something to listen to, and this is what we have to offer. This is how we approach the world, this is what we have to share, this is something we love. So we’re putting it out there for you.
We’re starting a new, short series this week: “A Few of Our Favorite Things,” where each week we take it turn to suggest, watch, and chat about one of the movies that we just never get tired of watching. Comfort is a little scarce these days, and these are movies that offer us comfort; they remind us of the remarkable things people are capable of creating. I can’t speak for anyone else, but I could use a little reminding these days. So this week, my choice is 1942’s Humphrey Bogart/Ingrid Bergman classic: “Casablanca.” I can’t really say that this is my favorite movie of all time, because I don’t really believe in having a single favorite movie. But if I had to pick a movie that checks all the boxes for me, this is it.
Come and listen. Also, below we’re including links to organizations that could use your help in these difficult days. Listing links may not be much, but it’s something we can do with this site, so we’re doing it.
