This hour: two stories that get incredibly, intimately, close to their subjects.

The Ground We Lived On
by Sarah Kramer, Adrian Nicole LeBlanc, and David Isay (All Things Considered, 2006)
When journalist Adrian Nicole LeBlanc's father was diagnosed with terminal lung cancer, she decided to record the final months of his life. The material she compiled is candid, loving, and raw with grief.

Madame Butterfly Effect
by Masako Fukui (ABC's Radio Eye, 2008)
Why is it that certain white men can only contemplate relationships with Asian women? Do they crave a serene, beautiful, submissive version of the feminine ideal? Are they sick and perverted? Masako Fukui bravely investigates the male psyche -- and her own responses to the Asian "ideal" -- and wonders if she might be she part of the problem.
