Stephen Glass on This American Life


TAL does not have audio of Glass's work for them online because Glass made up so much of his work whole clothe. But here one is on Youtube.

Hindsight is 20/20 so it's impossible to listen and not feel like you can sense that Glass (Stephen, not Ira. No relation) is lying. In his pauses and his bursts of details, his seemingly affected emotions...

Despite the fact -- or maybe because of the fact -- that we are probably hearing unadulterted bullshit, this is really compelling audio.

[quality is not great, sorry. email or tweet if you find something better]

Knowing something is the right thing to do takes work — brain work — and our brains aren't always up to that."
