On Air America this week, Al Franken is on vacation. Filling in for him is Rachel Maddow, the best news broadcaster I’ve seen or heard in a long time. I’ve been addicted to her daily one hour show (5 – 6 AM eastern) for months now. It’s informative and entertaining and very efficient. Should be an interesting week on AA as Maddow’s backup does her show, she does Franken’s show, and interns or something do Morning Sedition while Mark and Marc are on vacation. All these shows can either be podcast through iTunes or downloaded from http://www.airamericaplace.com. Highly recommended.
