Two of my current media favorites are Found Magazine and This American Life). Found Magazine publishes found fragments from people’s lives – notes, photos – including the card above. This American Life uses brief radio documentaries – often with a similar “found” character.
I find these glimpses into people’s lives facinating. They gives us a sense of our common and shared humanity.
