Choice -

A brilliant & funny radio show that discusses the benefits of choosing not to choose in the face of overwhelming variety, in order to not overwhelm the brain....

The best part is the sound effect of an evil voice saying, "CAAAAAAAAAAKE!"
... and the part about the watermelon with an anus.
