>30 Days

5:01 PM


There's a new show (well, not exactly new per se - it's in its third season) that I stumbled upon thanks to the recommendation of one of my classmates. Like Penn & Teller's Bullshit, this show tackles controversial subjects such as immigration, abortion, new age living, and atheism. Only this does it with a twist - forcing people with opposing viewpoints to live with controversial matter for 30 days. For example, the immigration episode had a Minute Man (a common citizen that helps patrol the U.S. borders to Mexico) live with a family of illegal immigrants for 30 days. Also unlike Penn & Teller, the show makes no conclusions for you and gives an unbiased view of both sides of the controversial material. Some people leave the situation changed, and others leave unchanged. The show itself has proven to be an eye opener for me on quite a few issues. If you're interested, you can check it out here.
