There is a cult radio show in the United States, ruling among the urban youth. (It’s funny to write about the First World with phraseology usually reserved for the Third). A few Saturdays ago, This American Life, made an episode out of a very popular one-man-show that does something truly, incredibly hard. It is nearly impossible to tell such stories to First World audiences in any meaningful way: to connect holding of smooth iPads and iPhones and stuff of magic in our hands to hands that put them together.
It’s quite a trick. You really have to know how to tell a story to pull something like that off. In the course of it, the storyteller turns into something of a investigative reporter, and does something very few would try, and finds lots of stuff I hadn’t heard or seen anywhere else. Not like this.
