STORIES ABOUT STORIES: "SUPER DUPER"

Here's the first post in a new series, which I will descriptively call "Stories About Stories." The WBEZ radio program This American Life is known, of course, for its excellent stories -- mostly factual, with the very occasional fiction tossed in. In each installment of this series of blog posts, I'll link to one or more This American Life stories that are about stories or storytelling itself. (I may also sneak in the occasional story about stories from other sources.) Meta enough for you? 

"SUPER DUPER: Josh Bearman's favorite story was told to him by his super. It involved these elements: A gas station, a beautiful woman, an orchid, a snowman, Indonesia, and a check for $30,000. But when Josh decided to try and publish the story in a magazine, it changed everything. (13 minutes)"
