A few years ago, I heard a reading on the radio of a writers account of her correspondence with a group of teens that would invade her house while she was away. I believe it was on NPR. [more inside]

I want to listen to NPR (esp. All Things Considered
) on my OS10.3 Mac, but the only options they give are Real and Windows Media. I don't want to install any bloated spyware (read: RealPlayer or Windows Media Player) on my sweet sweet aluminum baby, so what kind of good, lightweight, and free player can I find that will let me play one or the other of those formats?

Name That Band: Mexican punk band featured on NPR two days ago (Wednesday); fun music aimed at kids, but kind of "anti-fairy tale" stuff with in-your-face references to corrupt police officers and politics and such, no mollycoddling whatsoever. Who are they? They're cool (and fun for adults too). Google and Search NPR are not helping.

? While listening to NPR this afternoon, a UVa student giving a tour used the word "academical" in describing a portion of UVa's campus . The use of "academical" struck me as sounding very odd although it is arguably correct. Is it all academic

Can anyone recommend further listening along the lines of "The Treatment"
in Real/WMA/mp3-based streaming format? I mean, obviously there's "Fresh Air"
But are there more? I drive a lot. A LOT. I am interested in entertainment and popular culture. Not so much the political, please, unless it's far-out crackpot funny stuff.

Are there radio feeds that carry television signals, or simulateneous news feeds for television news? I live in the NYC area and don't have access to a TV, but want to hear the Condoleeza Rice testimony this morning... NPR's the only radio station I can find that actually lists its programming news schedule, and the ABC affiliate in New York is conservative talk radio, so I doubt they'll have it. Not just for this specific event, but generally, do news networks carry radio feeds still? Did they ever?
