My college friend Ben Beach, editor of The Wilderness Society's Wilderness Magazine, never misses a Harvard-Yale football game and always holds a tailgate barbecue before the game. In this podcast Ben talks about the hard-to-define pleasure he gets from this regularity, and he and I remember the most famous Harvard-Yale game in the 125-year history of the classic, 1968's version which ended in a 29-29 tie. The podcast contains audio clips from Ben and his wife Carol's 36th consecutive barbecue this year, and also some audio from a showing at a local movie theatre of "Harvard Beats Yale, 29-29," a new documentary out about the game. I highly recommend the movie, which The New Yorker calls "a fascinating feat of cultural archeology."

My wife Darlene, a quilter, today helped me think through the talk I'll give this weekend in Billings, Montana, about Internet technology and the arts. She looks for tools that help her do things, not a lot of personality and ego. Good advice for this podcaster! (She's also looking for a good video podcast about quilting, so please leave her any tips in the comments.)
The workshops are being presented by the Montana Arts Council. Previous sessions were held in Great Falls and Missoula.
Music for my podcast is "Going to the Sun" composed and performed by Montana musicians Christine Dickinson, Janet Haarvig and Matthew Lyon. It's from their Glacier Journey CD.
