    Duh! I can’t beleive I forgot South Park. They’re definitely pioneers in Satire. I think “Blame Canada” in their film was about the funniest Satire I’ve seen in years. Thank you For Smoking was also good, come to think of it. I wish more people’d seen that movie.

    Another show on tv that’s good for some satire is South Park.

    Thanks for the 3 short pieces. I don’t think I’d ever read the Kate Chopin story, and it’s been ages and ages since I read the other two.

    Boy oh boy, did I LOVE those stories. In fact, I loved them so much that I am downloading this episode at home for my daughter to listen to, having piqued her interest with a brief description of each. Great picks, Heather!

    Hey Heather! I’m writing before I’ve listened to this week’s episode, but wanted to drop you a quick note. I love two of the three and am looking forward to being introduced to “War Prayer” for the first time. Thanks for doing this podcast. I look forward to the story and your discussion on it every week.

    I also wanted to let you know that after listening to Pride and Predjudice, my view on an old favorite song has really opened up. My son loves the movie Shrek which uses Joan Jett’s song “Bad Reputation.” I heard the lyrics and couldn’t help but think that Joan Jett is a 1980s version of Lydia down to the “t.” Plus, when DS begins asking why she does what she wants to do, I’ll have a whole different explanation.
