About this show

Fearless autobiographer and gonzo journalist Mike Daisey returns with the story of his journey to a remote South Pacific island whose people worship America and its cargo at the base of a constantly erupting volcano. Part adventure story and part memoir, this narrative is woven against a searing examination of the international financial crisis that gripped the globe at the same moment. Using each culture to illuminate the other, Daisey wrestles with the largest questions of what the collapse means, and what it can tell us about our deepest values.
