Three great audio-only stories: Politics, Pongo and Portal

1. This is actually from Tuesday, and I took a listen because of my odd interest in Canadian politics. The story is an excellent profile on Liberal Party leader Michael Ignatieff, who is currently trailing Conservative Party leader Stephen Harper in the election polls. Excellent ambient sound. Of course, it’s from NPR’s “All Things Considered.”

2. Here’s a piece from a favorite professor (Florangela Davila) of mine: a story for KPLU on the Pongo Teen Writing Workshop. It’s pretty long, but still works.

3. Lastly, here’s  a story on the Portal and Portal 2 video games that was featured on NPR’s “Morning Edition.” It started as a project at Digipen here in Washington state, and the original went on to sell four million copies. Another terrific example of NPR’s great work.
