"Best of the beep". Hmm. It could be a good idea. Part of me can't help but wonder, however, if this is an emergency Krulwich on steroids. :-)

Dan saying that Ms. Stewart is married to a Jewish man and, thus, can judge the Purim hamantashen bakeoff--no big deal,Trish.

HOWEVER, did you notice that he uttered the profanity "d*mn!" This dirty word is bleeped in on air BPP audio clips. Shameful...

Make Dan get you some water, Trish. Then give it back to him so that he can WASH HIS MOUTH OUT with it.

That is all.

jayn...hmm...BPP moves to the comedy/food channel. You might be on to something. :-)

In all seriousness, I hope NPR knows they are on to something special. The BPP is deliciously audacious in its creative experimentation with "delivering" information (not just news).

I know I'm down with BPP...(pardon my old school rap reference and my omission of the definite article before "BPP"--can ya' tell I'm an NPR listener?)

jayn...yes, I'm kidding. Sarcasm/irony does not work well in email/blogs/etc. I'm learning that.

It's a damn shame.

(FYI - my comment was in reference to the BPP bleeping the word "damn" in one of the shows. But actually, if I remember correctly, the word was g**damn--I think that one might actually get them in trouble with the FCC. Geez...can one of you BPP staffers please clear up this FCC s**t for me?)
