This American Life: Crybabies

This American Life: Crybabies

This entire show is great but act three is particularly fascinating: The Squeaky Wheelchair Gets the Grease.

In California, a kind of crybaby cottage industry has popped up around, of all things, the Americans with Disabilities Act—the federal law that requires all public places to meet a minimum level of accessibility. Some people make a living by suing business owners for not being up to code.

Listen to the show later today when it gets posted or through their podcast in iTunes: This American Life.
