About This Show

Following the success of The Last Cargo Cult, Mike Daisey turns his razor-sharp wit to America’s most mysterious technology icon in this hilarious and harrowing tale of pride, beauty, lust, and industrial design. He illuminates how the CEO of Apple and his obsessions shape our lives, while sharing stories of his own travels to China to investigate the factories where millions toil to make iPhones and iPods. Daisey’s dangerous journey shines a light on our love affair with our devices and the human cost of creating them. The New York Times has hailed Mike Daisey as “the master storyteller” and “one of the finest solo performers of his generation.”

Mike Daisey’s superb solo performance is given added resonance by the recent death of the visionary Apple founder.
