MonologuistMike Daisey was once devoted to Apple products. Then, one day, he “started to think, and that’s always a problem for any religion.” He began to question how his favorite products were put together, so he traveled to China with hopes of finding out. What he saw was shocking. If you own an Apple device (which I’m betting you do), you need to listen to this episode of This American Life. [Image]
I just listened to this episode of TAL on my commute today and I can’t recommend it enough. I stopped at one point on my walk from the subway and looked at my iPhone, took it out of its case, turned it over and read “Assembled in China” on the back. Listening to Mike Daisey’s account in my headphones and I realized I hadn’t a clue what that truly meant before now.
