286: Mind Games

Apr 8, 2005
Stories of people who try simple mind games on others, and then find themselves way in over their heads.
  • Host Ira Glass interviews Lori Gottlieb about the time she sent a letter to a writer in a magazine, a letter packed with white lies. One complication led to another and before long, the writer seemed to be lying to her. Or maybe he wasn't. It was hard to tell. Years later, she still isn't sure what happened. Gottlieb is the author of Stick Figure: A Diary of My Former Self and other books. (12 minutes)JournalismWriting
