    Summary

    A whole week of emotional instability? It's kinda surprising to me that that only got half a line of a song. Must have been rough, having your trust betrayed and then being left in the prison system.

    (Someone had to be the first to legit write about this, right?)

    Summary

    From WBEZ Chicago, it's This American Life. I'm Ira Glass. Today on our radio program, we have three stories of people stepping from one world, the only world they’ve ever known, into an entirely new world. What happens when you open that door? What do you do with what you find, and -- when you look back -- how do you understand what you’ve left behind? Stay with us.

    Summary

    Six weeks after Veronica, Nina and Don show up with a bottle of gin and make Piz an OKCupid profile. None of them really like gin, but Don says, "believe me, you're not gonna like this either," and he's right. It is gruesome. Every picture they take seems to project desperation or resentment, makes him look like a 12 year-old or a serial killer. He runs out of room on the 'music' section and leaves acres of white space every else. He is not a whole person and he's going to die alone.

    Summary

    Carlos visits Cecil in the studio and finds him in conversation with some familiar voices. Lots of nerdy public radio references!

    Our plan was to just get out there. There was a story waiting for us, one that we all knew was the stuff of legend.

    Summary

    Sarah often tells interviewers that Ira's true genius is in editing, picking apart stories and putting them back together in the most compelling way possible; the part she leaves out is that he'll first indulge every single idea that you have, playing devil's advocate for every whim or tangential interest just so that you check it out. Then once you have a semblance of a story, that's when he'll tear it apart.
