[Ed. note: Mr. Sedaris is more of a public radio favorite than a public radio host but sometimes you break the rules for the ones you love. Here he is channeling Billie Holiday. Listen next time the news brings you down.]
SEDARIS: I was on tour a few weeks ago, and I wrote this thing in this woman’s book, and I don’t know, apparently, she got upset about it. But I meant it in a good way. I must have just misunderstood. We must have misunderstood one another. And I hate the thought of anybody being angry at me like that, but… I mean, really, what I wrote in her book, it’s the filthiest thing. It’s unbelievable. Really, you cannot get any filthier than this. And that’s what I kind of liked about it, you know, as a book inscription.
We loved this On the Media segment about Grindr, “A Casual, Anonymous Interview,” so much that we are interrupting our attempt to convince the office accountant to finish our taxes to bring you this photo of producer/babe Doug Anderson. Doug, we are always up for a little casual, anonymous grinding with you. Ping us! HOT!
We don’t know if it was Ira’s manly baritone or his dashing good looks, but the people have spoken and This American Life narrowly beat Radiolab in the Public Radio Bracket. We can’t wait to see footage of all of Chicago celebrating tonight. PUBLIC RADIO PARTY!!! HERBAL TEA FOR EVERYONE!!! Our congratulations to Ira and the rest of the TAL staff. HOT!
Happy birthday to mega babe Carl Kassell. Not only is Mr. Kassell Wait Wait… Don’t Tell Me’s official judge, scorekeeper, and prize, he was also honored as the 2013 North Carolinian of the Year, which we would be bitter about losing if we weren’t so busy resting our eyes on this handsome mug. ALL HAIL CARL KASELL!! HOT!
We’re pausing our sabbatical to bring you this photo of Melody Kramer, Fresh Air’s associate producer for digital media, who is leaving public radio to find a cure for death. Best of luck to you, Dr. Kramer. We hope you find med school both enlightening and full of babes. HOT!
ANNOUNCEMENT TIME! BONPR is going on holiday! Please keep sending us your favorite babes of NPR, but we’re going to spend some time in the islands, working on our Irish tan and our new Tumblr, Don’t Ask, Do Tell, in which we see to our true calling—giving advice to people who didn’t ask for it. We’ll see you soon, friends. Here’s one last picture of Ira Glass to keep you going. HOT!
Our apologies for the lack of attention we’ve paid to you this week, BONPR fans. It’s not that we’re running short on babes (there are TONS of hot bishes left), but we recently came into possession of a literal trunkload of sex toys and spent the week fielding messages like, “Will trade dinner for dick,” and then driving around town delivering the goods from the back of our minivan. To make it up to you, here’s a bevy of babes, all submitted by devoted NPR listeners. HOT!

Boss keeping the the AC too low? Had pull out the winter clothes you keep in the trunk of your car because your housemate turned the closet into a spirit cave? Heat up with BONPR on WNIN’s The Trend today at noon central time. Hot as Bob Edwards in a turtleneck. Yowza!
