04/10/2015On an all-NEW Snap, "Eye Of The Beholder." For those who see the beauty in all things. Snap Judgment, storytelling with a BEAT... from PRX and NPR.
05/06/2015Retail spaces are designed for impulse shopping. When you go to a store looking for socks and come out with a new shirt, it's only partly your fault. Shops are trying to look so beautiful, so welcoming, the items so enticingly displayed and in such vast quantity, that the consumer will start buying compulsively. This is the Gruen Effect.
A classic 99PI combo idealistic intentions gone awry, plus several surprise twists
04/08/2015A month is hardly a unit of measurement. It can start on any day of the week and last anywhere from 28 to 31 days. Sometimes a month is four weeks long, sometimes five, sometimes six. You have to buy a new calendar with new dates every single year. It's a strange design.
05/07/2015Shulem Deen was a 22-year old and ultra-religious, a Hasidic Jewish person, when he bought a computer and signed up for America Online in 1996. Until then he'd never had a real conversation with someone outside his community. Sruthi Pinnamaneni tells the story of how the internet ruined his life and how it might save it.

04/24/2015As a teenager, Kamari Ridgle was a drug dealer and drive-by shooter until a near-death experience led him to his true love...accounting.
04/24/2015Why do we become our worst enemies when it comes to pursuing the things we actually want? I’ve been there. This is the origin story of making Millennial and the nitty gritty mess that led to the first episode.
04/17/2015Adrian is 25 and losing his eyesight. He's in a race against time. He’s also in a battle between humility and pride. When is it stubborn, perhaps even foolhardy, not to make concessions to one’s disability? When is it the only way out? And where do you find wisdom to know the difference?
04/09/2015A girl is lost and can't find her mom. Why won't anyone help her? Performed by Bee Herbstman, Melanie Hoopes, Ed Herbstman, Evan Sudarsky Abadi, Gregory C. Jones, and Blanche Ames. Written by Diana McCorry, Produced by Jonathan Mitchell. (Image by Luis Mariano González)
04/18/2015I was invited to tell stories in Lewiston, Maine, an old mill town right outside of Portland for a storytelling show named The Corner. I'm treated well, I learn a lot, but I can't decide what story to tell...
04/23/2015First comes love...then comes equity StartUp is a podcast series about what it’s really like to get a business off the ground. In Season 1, Alex Blumberg told the story of launching this business, Gimlet Media, a podcast network. In Season 2, Alex is joined by co-Host Lisa Chow, to follow an entirely new company. The business is Dating Ring, a dating company that combines technology with old-fashioned matchmaking. The founders are women in their 20s, outsiders in the male-dominated world of Silicon Valley. And over the 10 episodes, we'll take you inside that world. Some of the challenges they face are different from Alex’s: founder disagreements, hellish fundraising, and sexism. But just like Gimlet's story, theirs is also a transparent account of something that happens everyday in America, but we rarely get to see firsthand: starting a business.
04/22/2015From Avenue B to Bushwick: Kathy Kirkpatrick tells us about the final days of her Life Cafe in the East Village and essayist Tim Kreider tells us about his exile in Bushwick. Plus your host tries to make sense of the first time he got a glimpse of the new New York at a party in late September 2008.
05/06/2015On the eve of the 2015 General Election in the UK, take a jaunt through the etymology of election-related words. Find out why casting a vote should be more like basketball, and why polling is hairy. There's more about this episode at http://theallusionist.org/electionlexicon.
