And everyone knows that when it comes to online dating people can be really non-committal, unwilling to settle down. And one of the things about doing a show about the internet is that people are often suggesting that you do stories about online dating, and we often choose not to, and then a few weeks ago our friend Stephanie Foo who’s normally a producer at This American Life that was unlike any online dating story that either of us had ever heard. STEPHANIE FOO: So a couple years ago, I interviewed this girl. She lives in San Francisco and she’d met this really cute guy on Ok Cupid.
He asks a reporter to investigate the son of a wealthy family who’s allegedly been bragging that he got away with murder.In the app, listeners can select an audio clip of up to 30 seconds and then post it directly to social media, where the audio plays alongside a transcription of the clip.At launch, the app operated on This American Life's archives, but the project will be released as open-source code, available for other audio projects to adopt.I see he says the kind of things to her that he says to me, like very sweet boyfriendy kind of things. STEPHANIE: Phoebe loved John, but after watching him betray her over and over again, she broke up with him. STEPHANIE: So this caller tells me this elaborate story of a guy, let’s call him Adam, who apparently dated only Asian women. He manipulated them, abused them, gave them herpes. But I didn’t know whether to be grateful or terrified. I feel like I have to also say that she is the first Asian woman who I’ve dated. PHOEBE: You know, here’s the thing though, I know it’s scary. They’ll actually have to look into my eyes and hold out their hands.Foo taught high school journalism after college, and began listening to This American Life and Radiolab.
