For all the reasons podcasting has proliferated as a medium, I am a podjunkie. And I am subject to algorithmic wonders, one of which was a recommendation of this episode of this podcast in my podcatcher. I listened from start to finish and then listened to more episodes. Anyone who regularly reads from our pages here would enjoy any of those episodes, so I am paying forward with this post.
As it happens, the host of the podcast was a student in a course I taught a dozen years ago, so the algorithm may be demystified slightly by that fact. What remains totally mysterious to me is this episode.
