So I finally listened to the This American Life episode entitled “Retraction”. It’s a really great episode and if you have heard it yet, here’s the link.
Basically, Ira Glass confronts a guy who fabricated a story about a trip to China where he says that he witnessed a bunch of things that he really didn’t witness. It’s waaay more complicated than that, but that’s the gist. It’s a gut-wrenching conversation and I would actually feel sorry for the TAL people, except that they fell for it in the first place. I mean, the guy created an off Broadway production based on his story for crying out loud. Anyway, this comic is my take on it all.
In any case, the new term at school starts tonight, so wish me luck!
