The News

I am an MSNBC junkie, and there is no way to *really* get it overseas. Even the geeky pathways to US feeds are closed down, the “clips” on the MSNBC website are SO slow and choppy that watching from the website is infuriating. Also the cable providers here provide a bastard version of CNN inbetween endless Indian musicals, game shows, news, and videos. Never, ever, MSNBC. Enter iTunes: MSNBC is making both Kieth Olbermann’s “Countdown” and the Rachel Maddow show available as video podcasts. The whole show, sans commercials, for FREE. So every day I just download the previous day’s broadcast and I have fresh news from home in my iTunes podcast list. In fact, as I sit here at the beautiful Hotel du Parc in amazing Pondicherry, there are two episodes downloading as I type. Magic. Thanks, MSNBC :)
