I'm listening to Speaking of Faith with Krista Tippet on NPR right now. I HATE this show mostly because of the host. She is soooooo self-important, and pseudo-intellectual and smug. Here she is:
Today on the show, she is interviewing Desmond Tutu and she's trying to be her regular earnest, irritating self, and he's having none of it. He will not take her seriously and keeps making jokes and then laughing his head off for awkward amounts of time. It's the kind of laugh where you lean back and roar at the ceiling. I can tell because it sounds like he gets pretty far away from the microphone. Either that or he's running around the studio laughing maniacally, which would explain Krista Tippet's nervous laughter.
Anyway, I am loving it. He's not being mean or anything, he's just having a good time and old no-sense-of-humor, I'm-so-important Ms. Tippet has been caught off guard. Ha ha.
Now I'd like him to go on Marketplace Money and put Tess Vigeland in a headlock.
