A live episode of the radio program, including stories told on stage by Dan Savage and Mike Birbiglia.
Web Extra: Two videos from our live event—Chris Ware's sad, beautiful cartoon Quimby The Mouse and Joss Whedon's musical performance about DVD commentaries.

You can also purchase a DVD of the show, which was filmed and sent live to 430 movie theaters around the country, and includes a great story by Starlee Kine that we didn't have time to include in the radio broadcast... and of course, a DVD commentary.

  • There's a town in Florida where if you shoplift, and get caught, a judge will send you back to the scene of your crime to stand in front of the store, with a large sign that reads "I stole from this store." Ira and producer Lisa Pollak talk to one such teenager who was caught stealing from a convenience store, the supervisor overseeing her punishment, and the judge who sends her there.
