Feb 13th 2007 1:24PM hmmm, the link disappeared out of my last comment. You can find the podcasts at: http://nationalgeographic.com/podcasts/walks.html (as well as in the iTunes store).
Feb 13th 2007 12:38PM Hey Gadling, you (and your readers) should check out National Geographic Traveler's Walks of a Lifetime podcasts, narrated by Rudy Maxa. So far we've got 22 episodes, of favorite cities and neighborhoods, from Tribeca to Tokyo, with more on the way.
Feb 7th 2007 1:21PM I would hate to see what clever insult M.I.A. would coin for you if she read this post. You're right to state that she is of Sri Lankan origin, but she's a Sri Lankan TAMIL, and much of her music is concerned with the Tamil struggle for independence from Sri Lanka's Sinhalese majority. The word you should have been teaching was "aama" (Tamil for "yes"). Or, even more appropriately, "illay," the Tamil word for "no," which I'm sure M.I.A. has plenty of occasion to use.
