"I recently got one of those blatant spam e-mails saying, 'I've been trying to call you and I miss you,' but I opened it anyways because I would rather destroy my computer than miss out on the slim chance that it was actually you."
-One of many notes to lost love in this episode of WireTap, as (I think) sent to CBC by listeners and read out by CBC Radio employees

"I Google you every day. Sometimes I want to see you so badly that I stay up for hours trying to find you. On those days, I'll type your name and my name right after it because it's nice to see us next to each other like that."

"Every time I drove you home I prayed for traffic."

"I keep trying to get my hair back to exactly the way it was when you loved me."

These quotations are alarmingly germane to Deep Madder. They make my eyes slightly watery and my chest feel a little weird.

Yeah, me too. I think it's my favourite radio show now, along with This American Life. You should subscribe to the podcast. What website did the quotations come from?

I'm surprised Christopher has still yet to comment on this.

Sorry, it kind of slipped my mind.

I finally listened to it, and I absolutely loved the first 15 or so. After that, the feeling of the staged-ness of the phone calls set in. The phone call from the first few minutes of the show felt real, whereas the other ones were almost certainly scripted. Perhaps the woman in the first call was just a really good actor, or maybe it was that the sentiments in it appealed to me more.

Also, did you notice that one woman references about In the Mood for Love? The more I think about that movie, the more I really like it.
