Barry Cooper on This American Life

Here is the episode of This American Life with Barry Cooper. Pretty heavy story. Definitely worth listening to.

The first part of the episode is also really good as well as they teamed up with one of my favorite news sources, Propublica to do a report on the financial crisis in more depth.

  1. I applaud Barry Cooper on his work and sacrifice, but I think he should have known better then to keep pot in his house while doing shit like this. Oh well, he knows better now. I hope he makes out with his custody battle. I don't think we have seen the last of him.

    Also, I had this idea for a reality TV show that busts cops, and I'm very happy to see someone actually doing it. I really wish a network would scrape up the balls to fund this. People need to see this. It seems there are two types of people, the ones who know about police corruption, either from firsthand experience or cynicism, and the delusional masses who seem to think this sort of thing can't happen. I really believe it is so widespread because of lack of accountability, and I believe society needs people like Barry Cooper and his show to demonstrate just how prolific this problem is.
