111: Adventures in the Simple Life

Sep 11, 1998

A note for extremely hardcore This American Life fans: Eustace's story about crossing the country with his brother was originally supposed to be in the same show as Sarah Vowell's Trail of Tears story about crossing the country with her sister, retracing the route of the Cherokee genocide. The show would've had to have been nearly two hours long.
  • When Eustace Conway was 17, he abandoned his normal life and decided to move to the woods. (6 minutes)ChildhoodEnvironmentHousingTeenagers
