Don't fret, we have a great starter package for you. &nbsp;We asked <a href="http://www.maximumfun.org/jessethorn">Jesse Thorn</a>, host of NPR's <a href="http://www.maximumfun.org/shows/bullseye">Bullseye</a> and founder of <a href="http://www.maximumfun.org/">Maximum Fun</a>, to share five of his favorite podcasts with us. He delivered six. Full disclosure, Jesse admits a slight bias in selecting some podcasts from his podcast network, Maximum Fun, but made it exceedingly clear that he is not directly involved in their production. We present Jesse Thorn's podcast picks, in no particular order, of course.</p><p></p><p></p><p></p><p></p><p></p><p></p><p></p><p> Wed, 29 Jan 2014 20:42:38 +0000 Maureen McMurray 42632 at http://nhpr.org Jesse Thorn's Podcast Picks NHPR Folk Show Playlist 1.19.14 http://nhpr.org/post/nhpr-folk-show-playlist-11914 <table border="0" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" style="width:626px;" width="626"><tbody><tr><td nowrap="nowrap" style="width:626px;height:20px;"><p>Song/ Artist/ Album/ Label</p></td></tr><tr><td nowrap="nowrap" style="width:626px;height:20px;"><p>The Moonshiner/ The Clancy Brothers &amp; Tommy Makem/ The Clancy Brothers And Tommy Makem In Person at Carnegie Hall/ Sony Legacy</p></td></tr><tr><td nowrap="nowrap" style="width:626px;height:20px;"><p>77 Lime Green Cadillac Hearse/ Jefferson Ross/ Isle Of Hope/ Jefferson Ross</p> Sun, 26 Jan 2014 21:30:31 +0000 Kate McNally 42465 at http://nhpr.org Folk Show Calendar 1.19.14 http://nhpr.org/post/folk-show-calendar-11914 <p align="center"><strong>Thursday, January 23</strong></p><p><strong>&gt;&gt;&gt;Vance Gilbert </strong>at the Flying Goose Brew Pub ~ New London, NH ~ 8pm</p><p align="center">&nbsp;</p><p align="center"><strong>Friday, January 24</strong></p><p>&gt;&gt;&gt;<strong>Doc Rogers </strong>at the Sunapee Coffeehouse ~ Sunapee, NH ~ 7pm ~ 603-763-2668</p><p><strong>&gt;&gt;&gt;Mark Wiley &amp; His Bluegrass Friends (Bluegrass Jam) </strong>at the Garrison Players Theater ~ Rollinsford, NH ~ 6:30-9pm ~ 603-750-4278 <u><a href="http://www.garrisonplayers.org/">www.garrisonplayers.org</a></u></p> Mon, 20 Jan 2014 00:33:01 +0000 Kate McNally 42114 at http://nhpr.org Think Juicing Is Tough?
