The Neo-Futurists

One of the best things revealed to me at college has been the greatness of This American Life. Before, I'd always thought of it as Summer on The OC had — Is that that show by those hipster know-it-alls who talk about how fascinating ordinary people are? Ugh, Gawd!

It may well be! And that's why I love it. On a free podcast released mid-December (but originally aired in 2003, evidently), the TAL team crammed 20 stories into one hour-long episode. My favorite part of it was a clip from Too Much Light Makes The Baby Go Blind, a play by the Chicago-based Neo-Futurists.

Click here to listen to it. It's maybe 3 minutes long. I guarantee you'll chuckle!
