This is an animation of a story told between mother and son on StoryCorps. I've listened to these recordings for a while but this one blew me away and continues to devastate me. At the end of the audio episode they explained that StoryCorps has recently partnered with POV to create an animation set to the voices. It is poignant and depressing and disgusting and timely. I think the visual is well done and the use of a medium that is usually light and humorous in such a contrasting way heightens the devastation of the story.
