Guest-Blogger Gretchen

Longtime readers will attest that I am extremely dedicated to sharing my random thoughts with everyone out there in blog-land. But from time to time my jet-setting lifestyle will take me to places where internet connectivity is faint or nonexistent. To deal with this terrible possibility, we are inaugurating a new feature here at Preposterous: the guest-blogger. (I understand that bloggers elsewhere have also experimented with this idea, but it's new for us.)

Figuring that we might as well start at the top, we are pleased to announce that our first guest blogger will be Gretchen Helfrich. Everyone in Chicago, and many public-radio listeners elsewhere, will recognize Gretchen as the host of the daily radio program Odyssey from Chicago Public Radio. (Anyone with RealPlayer can listen over the web whenever they like.) Odyssey represents exactly what you would like to hear on public radio: a spirited and in-depth examination of ideas, ranging from politics to science to the arts. Sort of like this blog, without as much whimsical self-indulgence and pictures of Godzilla. The best feature of the show is how they make every effort to generate light rather than heat, remaining interesting and entertaining while digging carefully into the issues lurking behind the topics being discussed. The opposite of the O'Reilly Factor in every way.

Gretchen will be taking the reins for about a week starting on Friday, as I'll be traipsing through the wilds of Wyoming. Everyone play nice, now.

Ideas on culture, science, politics.
