Where Do You Surf?

Recently, I was having a conversation with close friends. They asked where I go on the Internet. So I thought share where I "surf" with a short connection.
For news, I go to:
I find these sources to be the most credible with the least slant.

I also check in on USA Today for basic news.
I do check out Fareed Zakaria's website, as well as I try to listen to his weekly podcast.

These are the web sites I frequent quite a bit.    (Desribed as a "smart tabloid.")  (Literary and cultural magazine founded over 150 years ago.) (Donald Miller, Blue Like Jazz)     (Tracks what is viral on the Internet.)   (Keep up on human behavior in easy to understand format. Lots of blogs to check out.) (Uses social media to give ideas for a healthier lifestyle. Draws on all kinds of sources including natural medicine as well as traditional medicine, reformatted in a simple, easy to understand format.)  (Creativity resource.) (Good place to remind myself not to take myself too seriously!)  ("At best, things online are usually either awesome or meaningful, but everything on has a little of both. Sensational and substantial. Entertaining and enlightening. Shocking and significant." David Carr, NY Times)  (Jim Wallis, God's Politics
(Frederick Buechner, Wishful Thinking: A Theological ABC)
(John Shelby Spong, Jesus for the Non-Religious
(Marcus Borg, The Heart of Christianity
(You are what you eat! Do you know what you are eating?)
(Bill Moyers is a critic of big media and an investigative reporter.) 

Finally, here are the podcasts I listen to via iTunes:

This American Life -
(Hosted by Ira Glass. Get informed, entertained and surprised!)
The Moth -  (Incredible storytelling. Food for the soul!)
Freakonomics -
(They explore the hidden side of everything!)

The TED Radio Hour -  (Brings the thread of similar TED Talks,,  together to explore a topic.)

On Being with Krista Tippett -
 (A thoughtful approach to all matters spiritual. Soul food.)

Do you have suggestions? I'd love to know where you surf!
