This American Life

Fridays, 8PM - 9PM ; Saturdays, 4PM - 5PM
  • Hosted by Ira Glass

Take in a slice of Americana with critically acclaimed host Ira Glass on This American Life.  Each week he picks a theme, then gives his writers and performers the freedom to weave real stories from real people around that theme in a manner they find most engaging. You'll meet fascinating people with stories that range from heart-warming to bizarre. Glass and company try interesting things and take radio where it's never gone before. It's a show that defies description, but has become one of public radio's most celebrated programs.
