This is one of those episodes that stays with you
This episode of This American Life is one of those that you will never forget. Hearing the real life phone calls from hostages and feeling their desperation and pain is truly unforgettable. This is one of those episodes that puts all our trivial problems in perspective and makes you realize the horrors that some people endure in third world nations through no fault of their own and with no one there to pick up the pieces. It will give you chills, bring tears to your eyes and make you believe in humanity again.
