Relevant, Muddled/meandering, Thought-provoking, Looong, Absorbing

See it if you're ok w/2 hrs of rambling. MD is intellig/engaging, but he's defensive abt his "scandal." He lacked integrity, so it's hard to trust him

Don't see it if you want coherence. His points abt bad faith get muddied. But he is funny/ clever. Needs serious editing, shaping. Disappointing.

Funny, Indulgent, Thought-provoking, Rambling, Disappointing

See it if You want to see Mike Daisey sit at a desk and do his podcast. Some interesting bits lost in a rambling stream of consciousness.

Don't see it if You desire any action AT ALL or even a coherent plot. He doesn’t really even tie it all together with the loose thread the title suggests.

Scattered, Long, Absorbing

See it if Engaging storytelling but also a bit scattered. At 2 hours, was 30-40 min. too long covering too much. Also... polyamory never works out.

Don't see it if You don’t like monologues performances.

Indulgent, Slow, Thought-provoking, Disappointing, Confusing

See it if you enjoy extended monologs pushing personal experiences into generalities. Mike Daisey is a good speaker who clearly enjoys telling stories

Don't see it if You are expecting historic or economic revelations. This time he stays with his personal experiences stemming from a recent divorce.

Amusing, Disappointing, Drawn-out, Indulgent, Rambling

See it if you want to be a part of Daisey's therapy session, wherein he rambles & meanders thru personal stories as he tries to rehab his reputation.

Don't see it if u expect something coherent, cogent & original from a generally insightful & articulate monologist; ur a Trumpist (or u have Trump fatigue). Read more

Thought-provoking, Indulgent, Slow, Edgy, Ambitious

See it if Daisey's most personally honest; thus powerful show to date Finally located the nexus of political & personal via the realm of bad faith

Don't see it if Monologue is dense, lengthy & overwrought (Daisey trademarks) requiring rigorous attention for payoff A meditation on our irreligious time
