From the description of episode 477 of This American Life, “Getting Away With It,” which aired this weekend:
Ira [Glass] takes a flight with travel writer Ken Hegan, to witness Ken deploying a travel gadget that keeps the seat in front of him from reclining. This means more knee space for Ken — but does he get away with it, really?
Ken and I met on a press trip to Israel (in the photo at the Dead Sea, he’s on the far right, I’m on the far left). He’s a riot, Canadian, and—contrary to what he tells Glass—not a “total dick.” So you should listen.
