Cool, thanks for this! I got 80 percent, but I really love the show.

And SenorMysterio - the TV show is really excellent. It is shot in high-definition and they tend to use the kinds of stories that translate more easily into images than radio. One episode focused on a teenager who was completely paralyzed and his struggle to gain independence from his mother... very good stuff.

TV Show??? I love the radio show but dont know if it would be any good on tv? Has anyone seen it? Are the stories reenacted or just told?

Ive never seen the OC but got a lucky guess on that question because I think it fits pretty well
