Can you find the transcript of his story?

I can, although I wasn't sure I could. It's Act 1 here: http://www.thisamericanlife.org/radi...provement-kick

It's better to listen than read these, it's a lot like Kerouac.

Okay that makes sense. I checked, my local library doesn't over check out service of ebooks, you have to read them in the hear and now, apparently. The library in the county just to the south of me uses Overdrive as does the big county north of me. I download many free ebooks from a variety of sources, most of the classics and a lot of other stuff is available from Project Gutenberg.
