This American Life

This American Life

This week's episode:

370: Ruining It for the Rest of Us

"When they decided not to vaccinate their son against measles, two San Diego parents thought they were making the best decision for their child. But when the 7-year-old came home from an overseas trip suffering from the disease (pictured at left: measles virus), his family’s personal decision became a whole community’s problem. The resulting outbreak infected 11 children and endangered many others. This and other stories about what happens when people's actions and choices infringe on those around them. Including the disquieting truth about Amtrak’s Quiet Car.

If you listen to podcasts at all, you probably already know that This American Life is one of the best around. I'm looking forward to listening to this one.
