This American Life aired an episode Semptember 4th 1998 on Mapping. Everyone should listen to this because a) it is very possible that this may be the best This American Life ever posted, and b) it is totally applicable to our class. Ira Glass starts the episode off by saying "Every map is a different way to seeing the world" , thus they devote the hour long episode to exploring mapping our everyday experiences through each of the senses...sight.hearing.smell.touch. Ultimately ones everyday can be seen through the episodes exploration of mundane events which would otherwise go unnoticed.
