#568: Human Spectacle 2015
Gladiators in the Colosseum. Sideshow performers. Reality television. We've always loved to gawk at the misery or majesty of others. But this week, we ask the question: What's it like when the tables are turned and all eyes are on you?
An episode from last year, with one story swapped.
#379: Return To The Scene Of The Crime
A live episode of the radio program, including stories told on stage by Dan Savage and Mike Birbiglia.
#567: What's Going On In There?
Often we see someone’s situation from the outside and think we know exactly what’s going on. This week we get inside and find out just how much more interesting the reality of it is. Including a teenaged girl who records a remarkable story about the boyfriend who abuses her, and why it’s so hard to break up with him. Also this week: our new video by Bianca Giaever.
