Mike Daisey’s performance exposing China factory worklife finds another more accessible platform

The talk about this performance just keeps piling up. Featured today in cover story for CBS Sunday Morning show here,  Having started at Berkeley Rep and then Washington’s Wooly Mammoth, monologist Mike Daisey’s brilliant, funny, disturbing report on working conditions in the Shenzhen factories where most of Apple’s products are assembled is now running at New York’s Public Theater but radio host Ira Glass has taken it one step further.  He aired a one-hour audio version of The Agony and Ecstasy of Steve Jobs last Friday on This American Life and has now made it available as a podcast. This is a great opportunity for all to get this poignant theatrical insight into Chinese factory worklife…and its American connections to it.
