if you have time in your weekend, i recommend the company of Stephen Fry's Podgrams. see the audio list on this page.
Favourites are Wallpaper (on Oscar Wilde, recorded in Colorado, and a nice lesson in the basics of aestheticism) and Language (unsurprisingly enough, on language. fans of Fry and Laurie will get a good chuckle at a certain chess reference). Bored of the Dance had me in fits of chuckling, even as a Scot who likes dancing and wouldn't turn her nose up at stripping the willow.
it's deliciously enthusiastic and wonderfully ranting stuff... some are off-the-cuff musings, others more structured 'blessays'.
either way, they're perfect for pootling about to and for clearing out the head of invasive, prickly thoughts like a glorious flourishing sweep of a broom.
