Again, from the depths of the Bechtel dumpster, into which poured many exciting and useful things during the time I worked in their accursed building, comes this spoken word find, "The Convincer". I recall that first I dredged out the box of slides that made up this program, extremely gory and livid color slides of industrial-related injuries, and then later I found the cassette that went with them. I've always enjoyed old-fashioned slideshow audio, with the BEEP after each paragraph, to prompt the operator to the next slide (or if you were really swanky, you had the player that would recognize the beep and run the show by itself). Eventually I got around to digitizing the contents of the cassette, although I only ever got through side one, and now after several moves the tape is gone. I did keep the incredible slides, though.
So, here now is side one of The Convincer (1960), dealing with injuries to the eye. You can be glad that I don't have the slides here at my current home- the audio descriptions are enough to fill in a mental picture, I think. Yup, eighteen mp3s of good reasons to keep your eye protection ON at all times!
