“This American Life” Update

Ira_GlassIra Glass visited Penn State a few weeks ago and recorded a “This American Life” episode. The episode (titled ‘#1 Party School’) is airing next Sunday (12/13) at 6:00 pm. Sunday, December 20th at 6:00 pm.

This was a description of the episode from a recent  This American Life email update:

What is it like to be at the country’s top party school? This American Life producers spent a recent football weekend at Penn State to figure this out. There, we learned the definition of “fracket” (think frat plus jacket); the best way to clean up beer cans after a big party (snow shovel); and how hard it is to get college kids to drink less (really hard).

Should be an interesting show.

And it is quite the experience. When you walk in, there is – prepare yourselves – a wall of frozen yogurt options. You get to walk up to this beautiful wall and vend yourself as many flavors as you like.
