Island Time – This American Life


Island Time is one of the best radio pieces to illustrate what is going on in Haiti and worth 60 minutes of your time (especially if you like good radio).

Here’s the promo blurb:

Unprecedented amounts of money have been pledged to Haitian relief in the last few months. American households have given over $1 billion and in March, 120 countries pledged over $9 billion(!) to rebuild. The only problem is that – historically – blanketing a country in aid and money has never really worked so well. Is there a chance this time things could be different?
