Being Citybroke is about perspective. It’s about seeing glitter in the gutter and a sense of humor when life is giving you everything you don’t exactly want and you’re hanging on for a dream that you sometimes can’t remember.
It’s not sales or survival - it’s an electronic letter from the trenches. It’s what suits who make $60K in at age 24 can’t even imagine. It’s Freedom. It’s Poverty. It’s Broken. It’s Beautiful.

A Great (free) Subway Pastime (that does not include reading)

I have recently discovered something almost everyone else is aware of. No, not Chai Tea...podcasts, baby. My favorite (ok, only) podcast source is the ever-friendly They have over 604 podcasts available including shows such as Fresh Air, Car Talk, Talk of the Nation, This American Life, and all the other "good" shows (a.k.a. ones I actually liked to listen to as a child on family road trips). My favorite? All Songs Considered - a great way to learn about new artists and old favorites, and Bob Boylan's voice is like a soothing melody. The best part is you can sign up for a free "subscription" for most shows and they just update your iTunes, Yahoo or Zune playlist with each new show. If you don't have an MP3 player, listen to the shows online.
