This week on The State We’re In from WBEZ: A Close One. 3 short stories of people who have had a brush with something terrible and walked away from it somehow changed, sometimes for the better. A comedian gets shot in the leg and has to learn how to find the funny again. A runner gets hit by a car and creates the Beirut marathon from her hospital bed. And Jonathan goes on a holiday to Africa and has a dangerous confrontation with desperation.
