It was a bit difficult to find the actual recording of Michael Pollan and NPR's Wait, Wait, Don't Tell Me! bunch talking about Ring Dings. I then sent to folks, and a lot of people told me that they had to look up more information to get the full context. Now you have it, people! Funny recording, context, and a link to the clip. ENJOY!
