    Welcome to Crybabies with Sarah Thyre and Susan Orlean. A show about celebrating all the things that make us cry. Sarah and Susan’s Cry of the Week choices lead them to talk about how they know each other, The Tale of Despereaux, Lou Rawls’ “Pure Imagination,” The Bangles’ “Eternal Flame,” and immersing yourself in heart break. Then, they are joined by actor, screenwriter, director, comedian Christopher Guest to chat about what makes him cry, having to cry on cue in a film, and the forever evolving crying triggers in It’s A Wonderful Life. Finally, Sarah and Susan discuss Pixar’s Up as they go through some Twitter submitted crying cues.

    This week we bring you backstage with comedy writers at The Onion. They start with over 600 potential headlines for their fake-news newspaper each week, and over the course of two days, in the very tough room that is their editorial conference room, they select 16 to go in the paper. Plus other people speaking their minds in very tough rooms.

  4. 129 Cars | This American Life

    We spend a month at a Jeep dealership on Long Island as they try to make their monthly sales goal: 129 cars. If they make it, they’ll get a huge bonus from the manufacturer, possibly as high as $85,000 — enough to put them in the black for the month. If they don’t make it, it’ll be the second month in a row.
