Mike Daisey / Apple / TAL

What a story. This Daisey dude did a one man play about how Apple is taking advantage of it's workers, and it caught the ear of TAL, so they put him on. Turns out his story is generally accurate as to working conditions, but he didn't actually see as much first hand as he claimed, so journalism-wise it doesn't cut the mustard, and TAL retracted the episode. So you can't hear the audio off of their website, though I downloaded it before the retraction if anyone is curious to hear it. You can hear the episode in which they talk about the retraction, and this CNN bit explains some, too.
