Radio Pick: Scenes from a Mall on TAL

BELLEVUE, WASHINGTON - This week's radio pick is the latest episode from This American Life.

Considering how few purchases I have made, I have spent an inordinate amount of time in malls across the continent in recent weeks. Since this is a broadly shared experience, Ira Glass and the This American Life team headed to the mall and collected a variety of interesting stories, from a salesman who kept trying to sell to his girlfriend too long to infighting amongst Santa Clauses to what those that watch the security cameras see. This 59-minute program was a great example of topical story-telling.
