So, she went somewhere that seemed to be doing a better job with its transplant patients— possibly one of the last places you’d expect. (16 minutes)"
This American Life always impresses me with reporting that seems to come from many different viewpoints without entirely bashing them. The humor is perfectly timed, and the seriousness and realness of the shows is amazing as well. This show did an even better job of showcasing that.
This is a great share. Minute 10 with the gay Trump support is an amazing case study in how politics works in America today and how ideology is a product of the people who surround you, why certain groups will always vote Republican, for instance, when voting Democrat would actually be in their best interest.
