#583: It’ll Make Sense When You’re Older

Author: This American Life
Mon, Apr 24, 2017

Stories of people who decide that they are the best person for the job, no matter how dangerous. Including a story about a stay-at-home mom with a history of gun running for a guerilla organization, and a surgeon who does surgery...on himself.
