481: This Week

481: This Week

Dec 7, 2012
This week we take on ... this week. Stories united by one thing: They all happened in the seven days prior to broadcast. We try our hand reporting the global stories in Egypt and Afghanistan; and take on super local stories, too, like a man who tries valiantly — valiantly! — to actually get out of bed when his alarm clock goes off. You can also see this week in pictures.

Pictured: Hyder Akbar’s car after he was ambushed in Kunar Province.
We sifted through thousands of images posted on Instagram and chose a selection of events, big and small, that people captured over the course of this week.
  • We hear from the people in the land of the non-working: Fred Beaton on his last shift driving a shuttle bus at Logan Airport before he retires; Linc Cohen and Sandi Weisenberg talk about what chores get done once retirement begins; and Angela Jane Evancie tries to get her boyfriend, Morgan Peach, to stop relaxing quite so much.
