Living Off the Grid: American Limbo from This American Life

I believe you can only stream this episode, not download the MP3, but it is well worth a listen.

You can also buy (and support) This American Life by paying $0.99.

I especially want you to listen to this episode about the Jarvis Family, which was fascinating.

Here’s the teaser:

The Jarvis family, a group of eight, goes on the run from the law—for seven years.

They live on a boat, in a treehouse in a swamp.

They escape capture time after time.

And how do the kids turn out, living a life outside of society, as fugitives? Surprisingly great.
