  1. No Place Like Home | This American Life

    There’s lots of ways we define where we’re from. And whether we’re proud of it, or ashamed of it, love it, hate it, miss it or are trying desperately to get back to it — where we’re from is always a big part of who we are. This week, stories of people who are, in good ways and bad ways, coming to terms with the places they call home.

  3. Except For That One Thing | This American Life

    Mike Anderson was 36 years old, married, a suburban father of four. He owned a contracting business and built his family’s modest, three-bedroom house in St. Louis from the ground up. He volunteered at church on the weekends and coaches his son’s football team. All pretty normal, right? Except for one thing … which surfaced one day last summer.

  5. David Weinberger on knowledge

    David Weinberger, senior researcher at Harvard Law’s Berkman Center for the Internet & Society and Co-Director of the Harvard Library Innovation Lab at Harvard Law School, discusses his new book entitled, “Too Big to Know: Rethinking Knowledge Now That the Facts Aren’t the Facts, Experts Are Everywhere, and the Smartest Person in the Room Is the Room.” According to Weinberger, knowledge in the Western world is taking on properties of its new medium, the Internet. He discusses how he believes the transformation from paper medium to Internet medium changes the shape of knowledge. Weinberger goes on to discuss how gathering knowledge is different and more effective, using hyperlinks as an example of a speedy way to obtain more information on a topic. Weinberger then talks about how the web serves as the “room,” where knowledge seekers are plugged into a network of experts who disagree and critique one another. He also addresses how he believes the web has a way of filtering itself, steering one toward information that is valuable.

  8. 129 Cars | This American Life

    We spent a month at a Jeep dealership on Long Island as they tried to make their monthly sales goal: 129 cars. If they made it, the dealer would get a huge bonus from the manufacturer, possibly as high as $85,000 — enough to put them in the black for the month.
