I think "Wordplay" is the episode you mean.

The podcast site is here, for Rehctaw.

That's a disturbing 9/11 story. How long after was that? How much do you think that was the hip, cynical posture? This was in Chicago?

I saw a very different reaction. I was teaching at a school up in CT on 9/11 – and we had many kids from NYC. (It was a private school, although with an alternative approach and a fair amount of scholarship students.) We also had a fair amount of people with family and friends in DC, myself included. The mother of one of my students worked in the WTC – and was luckily late to work that day. We had journal exercises in the morning to kick off a school meeting, and did smaller meetings throughout the day. A good friend of mine had just started heading up a school in Brooklyn, and many of the kids there had family members who had helped build the towers or worked there. Again, luckily they didn't lose anyone. The kids were scared, upset, angry, and struggled to process it all, as did many of us adults – but I didn't see any of the "fame" reaction. Maybe it was just proximity, and the personal connections. Maybe it's that some schools, including ours, actually spend a great deal of time discussing concepts like courage and honesty. I don't know. I was dismayed to see 9/11 become so exploited, but I actually saw a great deal of thoughtfulness and consideration that day – including from high school students, asking about my family, checking in on their friends from NYC, spreading the word that so-and-so's mom was all right. Peace.

So I walk into the local Radio Shack, I'm being waited on by a young woman whose name tag reads
"Hello, My Name is THAR"

"What an interesting name" says I.
"It's from the Bible" says she.
"Phew," says I. "For a minute I was thinking Moby Dick."
"Nah, mom says it's in the Bible"

Alrighty then...

Now this woman was young, but presumably has had this name her entire life, has gone to school and interacted with other people, yet this was the first time?

Rather than delve deeper in, I thanked her for taking my money, put the purchased mini-momentary switch in my pocket and exited.

So to the question...
Is there a link to the podcast blog site somewhere handy?

Well, if it's not a fair fight then I'm not going to fight fair.
