This story sounded familiar, and when I heard the remaining stories, I thought I had downloaded an old show. But no, the first story was new, and all the rest were repeats. In the past, OTM has always 'fessed up to the summer reruns. I know the Daily Show doesn't announce its reruns, but this is NPR, not basic cable!
