Springer for Senator!

Another gem from This American Life, you only really need to listen to Act 1 for the full impact.

In 1991, when I was 10 years old, I used to watch the Jerry Springer show on Channel 47 Cable 4 after school. It was a new show, and it was the first time I felt politically engaged. The show was heartfelt and dealt with important issues in a way that I could understand. What happened to the show the following year always made me wonder if this memory of a classy Springer was hallucinated. It wasn't. Put aside half an hour, then listen to this link and prepare to have your mind blown...
