This fast-paced thriller ensnares intelligence agents, drug cartel overlords, and politicians in a twisted web of deceit and deception. Camila Sanchez, an Argentinian garbage sifter, finds a partially shredded confidential CIA document among her overnight collection of refuse. This document describes a program to hack into the Argentine Intelligence agencies´ databases, including e-mails, and to glean details of their relationship with the powerful Mexican Gulf cartel. Camila considers this find as treasure and sells the information to the Argentine Intelligence Secretariat. Armed with this knowledge, the Argentines begin to feed misinformation to the CIA. Crusading anti-drug activists are falsely portrayed as being secretly in the pay of the cartel leading to numerous arrest warrants. Information and misinformation flows freely on the corrupted e-mail system but one Gulf Cartel directive surprises both the Argentines and the Americans: ´´Activate Rosario 5.´´ Rosario 5 proves to be a highly effective sex stimulant that threatens to overwhelm the youth of America and Argentina. ´´Paradise Parties´´, mimicking the San Francisco sexual orgies of the past, become commonplace and pervasive. Both societies are deeply threatened. A cooperative effort between the two countries to eradicate the curse ensues. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Danny L. Oringderff.

This Dragnet episode originally aired on December 15, 1949. From 1949 to 1957, Dragnet pioneered new levels of realism on radio. Every crime investigated by Sergeant Joe Friday was taken from the actual case files of the Los Angeles Police Department, with only ´´the names changed to protect the innocent´´. There were multi-layered sound effects; the actors used accurate police lingo, abbreviations, and penal codes; and the show didn´t shy away from stories about heinous crimes or stories that had unhappy endings. Created and produced by Jack Webb, Dragnet was much more than ´´just the facts´´. 1. Language: English. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/rt/radi/000427/rt_radi_000427_sample.mp3.

Shenandoah Chefalo is on a wholly dysfunctional journey through a childhood with neglectful, drug- and alcohol-addicted parents. She endures numerous moves in the middle of the night with just minutes to pack, multiple changes in schools, hunger, cruelty, and loneliness. Finally at the age of 13, Shen had had enough. After being abandoned by her mother for months at her grandmother´s retirement community, she asks to be put into foster care. Surely she would fare better at a stable home than living with her mother? It turns out that it was not the storybook ending she had hoped for. When a car accident lands her in the hospital with grave injuries and no one comes to visit her during her three-week stay, she realizes she is truly all alone in the world. Overcoming many adversities, Shen became part of the three percent of all foster care children who get into college, and the one percent who graduate. Despite her numerous achievements in life though, she still suffers from the long-term effects of neglect, and the coping skills that she adapted in her childhood are not always productive in her adult life. Garbage Bag Suitcase is not only the inspiring and hair-raising story of one woman´s journey to overcome her desolate childhood, but it also presents grass-root solutions on how to revamp the broken foster care system. 1.
