There was actually a radio show on this topic....July 22 ram format:
oh, and one more thing...that site which I linked to above, keeps a huge archieve of the "Odyssey" radio shows. It is a great resource for research and the transcripts are not hard to get.
The show is produced by the Chicago Public Radio, but I think its broadcasted nationally by NPR. It airs at 12pm central at Chicago. Most topics are extremely interesting and worth listening to. Today's topic: Shelley's Frankenstein.
