    Folks into Planet money and other NPR stuff might like my NPR script. It downloads week’s worth of NPR shows onto a thumb drive; useful if you’re stuck in a car driving on the weekdays.

    Off the shelf it grabs Car Talk (rerun), Wait Wait, This American Life, Planet Money, Marketplace and Freakanomics Radio. Feel free to fork and adjust to your liking.
