Three stories of how to get money from strangers. In every story, the money is made by people who make the strangers feel good about themselves and about their nation. NOTE: This American Life has removed the audio for this episode because of questions about the truthfulness of the story by reporter Stephen Glass (who’s no relation to Ira Glass). We have removed the audio from our site, and have left the transcript up only for reference.
