The latest This American Life featuring the Jeff Smith story, The Postcard Always Rings Twice is again, as is expected with TAL output, excellent radio.
Producer Alex Blumberg tells the story of Jeff Smith, a former Missouri State Senator who spent last year in federal prison. The story of how Jeff ended up there includes large sins, but begins with a relatively small one. In other words, it’s the story of a venial sin turning into a mortal one.
Which led me to Jeff Smith’s online presence at this internet locale.
Regarding the show, it is fantastic, and nearly caused to me breakdown viscerally as I completed laps around the gym track ;-(
