This week: a worm digger in rural Maine, a remarkably effective citizen spy, and more.

Entrepreneur
by Jesse Dukes (Salt Institute for Documentary Studies, 2005)
Adam Johns, who lives in rural Maine, thought he'd be rich by now, but he's not. He never really wanted to be a worm digger, but he does what he must to make ends meet.

Behind Enemy Lines
by Geoff Siskind, Jesse Brown, and Andrew Parker (CBC's Search Engine )
After the September 11th attacks, pretty much everyone felt like they wanted to do something to help out. People donated money and blood, they volunteered, they wore ribbons or put bumper stickers on their cars. But Shannon Ross Miller, a suburban housewife in Montana, did a lot more than that: she became a remarkably effective citizen spy.

My T-Shirt Says It All
by Jacob Fenston ( Making Contact , National Radio Project, 2005)
The T-shirt is a staple of the American wardrobe, worn by everyone at one time or another. It's a common denominator in a culture marked by differences. But while it's cheap and easy to make, the humble T-shirt shouldn't be underestimated. It represents a very personal — and yet very public — kind of communication.
