You may not have realised it, but Peul Feig's upcoming Christmas film, Unaccompanied Minors, is based (at least in part) on a story from This American Life. The episode, Babysitting, happens to be this week's American life podcast via iTunes. It's free, so open up the iTunes music store, download the episode and enjoy - the segment, In the Event Of An Emergency, Put Your Sister in an Upright Position, starts at 21:22.

I wish more people in the UK knew about This American Life, about Ira Glass, David Sedaris and Sarah Vowell - consider this the first salvo of my own grass-roots publicity movement.
