523: Death and Taxes

Apr 25, 2014
It is a peculiar feeling to know with certainty that something big is about to happen to you. This week we watch people go right up to the edge of inevitable change. We hear from preteens about the terrifying knowledge that puberty is about to happen...any minute now. And true to the death and taxes saying, we found it unavoidable to include a story about each one of those things.
Note: In the Internet version of Act One, we leave some curse words un-bleeped. You can find a bleeped version here.
  • This American Life producer Nancy Updike takes some personal questions about death and dying to a place where they're happening all the time. (36 minutes)DeathFamilyHealth Care/Medicine
