Have You Ever Lied to Me?

Vodpod videos no longer available.

Maybe it’s because I’m a little down and overworked these days, but this sweet video from the excellent non-profit StoryCorps moved me. Storycorps allows ordinary folks to record and archive the stories of their loved ones. More than 50,000 people have participated; their oral histories are archived in the Library of Congress, and some are heard on NPR or complimented with animation–like this one.

In the video, a twelve year-old boy named Joshua Littman, who happens to have Asperger’s syndrome, interviews his mom. Watch the video–and try your hand at retaining your cyncism.
