i heard the article (i'm never sure about the right word for a radio piece) too. the woman interviewed is the publisher of a magazine about lists & other minutiae. she talked about the psychology of people who make lists, how some people put in things they know they'll do, just to get themselves started. and others will put in personal things, etc.
a search at npr.org with yesterday's date, keyword lists and program all thing's considered brought up the reference.
