Audiţie de weekend (29.08.2008)

Acum câteva zile mă îndreptam spre un interviu şi am vrut să-mi limpezesc mintea ca să mă pot concentra. Şi atunci am zis că e timpul pentru Ira Glass şi This American Life. Aşa am ajuns să ascult episodul numit Matchmakers (se poate asculta integral, gratis).

Episodul conţine o poveste senzaţională, spusă viu şi plin de umor. E ultima şi v-o recomand cu căldură:

Act Three. Babies Buying Babies.

Elna Baker reads her story about the time she worked at the giant toy store, FAO Schwartz. Her job was to sell these lifelike “newborns” which were displayed in a “nursery” inside the store. When the toys become the hot new present, they begin to fly off the shelves. When the white babies sell out, white parents are faced with a choice: will they go for an Asian, Latino, or African-American baby instead? What happens is so disturbing that Elna has a hard time even telling it.
