Why not take in some This American Life on this American day? This week’s episode opens with an amusing anecdote wherein host Ira Glass, while visiting the recent Cindy Sherman retrospective at the Museum of Modern Art, encounters a woman who claims that she is the artist, undercover.

Then she admits that she isn’t actually Cindy Sherman. But isn’t that just what undercover Cindy Sherman would say?

This anecdote’s conclusion, along with the rest of the episode, is available here.
