Review of Shoplifting 101

A radio station would get a lot of calls for airing this. The piece makes a sort of game out of shoplifting. It's utterly engaging and well done. I think it could do very well on "This American Life" or a similar show. But to get it aired anywhere else, I think you'd need to balance it with another viewpoint, in order to keep the station's sponsors from pulling their funding.
