WNYC's Transmitter

Two New York City institutions met this week and our lives are forever changed. Ladies and gentlemen, the Muppets sing the Beastie Boys. 

(And a few other things you had to see online this week.)

Some weird white reggae is currently atop the singles charts. This white reggae song is much better and infinitely more self-aware.

Happy Friday.

Canine Flight School! This company, Air Hollywood, has mockups of planes that are used for film shotts.

But they also, apparently, also train and certify service dogs to be comfortable in airports and on planes (replete with simulated turbulence). Fantastic.
