BrightestYoungThings: PlayDC: Last Cargo Cult @ Woolly Mammoth:

Mike Daisey is one hell of a story-teller–even a seasoned raconteur would have difficulty weaving together such disparate plot-points as an America-revering island culture, the wonders of IKEA, and the cost of a sandwich in the Hamptons.
