This American Life

Saturday 1PM & Monday 8PM
  • Hosted by

Consisting of mostly journalism, but an entertaining kind of journalism that is built around a plot, the weekly public radio program and podcast This American Life puts together stories that focus on a different weekly theme on 89.5-1. The show features stories that have compelling people at the center of them, funny moments, big feelings, surprising plot twists, and interesting ideas. Like little movies for radio.

Apr 20, 2012

Imagine filling your grocery store basket, sampling the goods along the aisles as you browse. Then waltzing out the door without paying. And doing this day after day. Every once in a while, you see someone drop a few dollars in a box near the entrance, but not often. Listen as Ira Glass exposes this befuddling business model.

Become one of the few & proud

An email received from This American Life producer Ira Glass.
