Leaving a Mark - Airs Nov. 19
Some people buy stuff on CraigsList. Other people sell stuff on Craigslist. Then there's radio producer Emily Hsiao. She prowls CraigsList for story ideas. And what she found is essential listening. Hsiao met Bruce, a middle-aged man who was looking for a tattoo artist to cover up the offensive ink on his arm. Turns out Bruce spent a lot of his life doing heroin and robbing drug dealers. Also: We hear stories about a man who loses his voice to illness and a woman who buys too, too much. It's our pre-Black Friday tale for Listening Lounge listeners.
