This American Life

Do you listen to This American Life?  The radio show hosted by Ira Glass.  If you have never listened to the show, it is wonderful.  I listen to the shows while at work and sometimes get so involved that I stop, lean into the speakers, and just listen.  Isn't it amazing that a radio show can still pull you in, especially in today's world where everything is fast paced with instant gratification. 

This American Life is a weekly public radio show broadcast on more than 500 stations to about 1.8 million listeners. It is produced by Chicago Public Media, distributed by Public Radio International, and has won all of the major broadcasting awards.  The radio show and TV show follow the same format. There's a theme to each episode, and a variety of stories on that theme. It's mostly true stories of everyday people, though not always.
