This American Life

I’m listening to the 600+ episodes of This American Life, starting from the first episode in 1995 (as Your Radio Playhouse). Some of them I half-pay attention to, but others that I find especially interesting I’m beginning to post below.

Episode 32: Republican Convention, Act 2

A highly entertaining story about Dan Savage, a gay sex columnist and drag queen who joins the Republican party in 1966 and becomes (by default) the Republican Precinct Committee Officer in a predominately gay neighborhood in Seattle. (16 minutes)

Episode 61: Fiasco!

When a locally produced play goes very wrong.... (24 minutes)
