This Week’s Best Profile

A Christmas gift of wireless computer speakers (thanks, Mom!) has allowed me to catch up on a backed-up podcast collection. Very backed-up. This is from the May 22, 2009 edition of This American Life:

The episode, on “turncoats,” is here. Or just listen to the 37-minute story here.
