I understand the vitriol directed at the dancing christmas tree, but why the hate for Nubian goats?

I read the headline as raping. That's not a hobby, NPR

Have you never seen a dancing Christmas tree attack a Nubian goat? It is not a pretty sight. Save Our Goats!

I do like the idea of  maintaining a little free library.
I don't like the idea that the guy who started the trend sues anyone who builds and sells them.

I mean, I hate regular NPR listeners as well. And that one lady didc jockey makes me want to shove sharp things in my ears, every word she utters is just dripping with condescension.

Today we'll talk about a new hobby called "wafting" where you sniff your farts and describe the notes and sensations you experience. This is Fresh Air.

LOL,
I listen to NPR in the morning for a quick news update, but I do appreciate some of the odd shiat like Zorba and Moth, etc..
But yes, some of the stories are riveting, some not so much

Will there be a quiz in which, after evaluating flatulence, you have to guess from whom it emanated?
That would be "Wait Wait... Don't Tell Me!"

I was about to be offended but I do like Roller Derby and Conan O'Brien.

Some of the other things on that list not so much. Sweaters and scarves are a miss.

I used to randomly listen to the car talk show on NPR.   Left me with the impression that the average NPR listener drove a 19 year old Volvo and they were too cheap to take it to a mechanic.

My town has little free libraries it's very nice.
 
2022-08-08 11:36:11 AM  
Indeed subby. Personally I like being one of many artisanal breakdancing goat herders who rap while reading tarot, then performing an aerial feats wearing Halloween costumes after drinking some tea, then doing genealogy and solving two or three Rubik's cubes blindfolded after dropping off a book at free library and feeding the isopods.

What can I say, I'm an eclectic guy.
 
2022-08-08 11:36:29 AM  
A veritable plethora of upper middle class white people hobbies!   For a group of people that loves to celebrate diversity, they are very oddly homogeneous and predictable in their ways.

Don't be talkin' shiat about Click & Clack. NPR may have taken some odd turns as of late, but that show was a goddamned gem. I won't hear or read a word against it.

I don't think these hobbies are a problem. I think if the hobby is the only special thing you do in life it might be a problem.

I raised isopods when I was a kid as food for my pet toad. I didn't know it was a thing.

many years back, Michelle Martin hosted "Tell me more".  lots of stories about Blacks, latinos, and native americans.  Stories I probably would never have heard anywhere else.
Then NPR cancelled the show (among many others, TBF)
I could hear the anger in her voice when she announced the upcoming cancellation.
That was the first time I heard about native american women being beaten & raped, and how local law enforcement did not take it seriously.  I'm sure it was happening before, that is just the first time I heard about it.
/ I know, I sound white.

That person solving a Rubik's cube blindfolded is wearing a 21 Pilots shirt, which is WAY too commercial for NPR. Please upgrade to Lana Del Rey or Pigeon Pit.
