Tonight at 8pm ET on Ernest Radio Network, it's Beaten Path.

The Oscars happened this past Sunday, and while they are self-serving in their very existence, a few things stuck out.  No, we're not talking about John Travolta mispronouncing Idina Menzel as "Adele Dazeem".  Rather, when Matthew Mcconaughey won Best Actor, he went on and on about himself and being his own hero.  This is opposed to Jared Leto, who won for Best Supporting Actor in the same film Dallas Buyers Club, and acknowledged the millions of people who have lived with HIV, and died from AIDS.  Just how self-serving can the Oscars be, anyway?

All this plus NPR news, music, and more.
