Episode Detail: Escape - This American Life

The second season begins in Philadelphia, where teenage boys find ways to impress girls and break away from the confines of their families, using a mode of transport that has been obsolete in their neighborhood since the 19th century. Also: a young man's fight for independence from his mother would be a normal and healthy step for any kid, were it not for some very specialized circumstances.
