This American Life on 89.5-1

Saturdays at 1 PM and Mondays at 8 PM
  • Hosted by Ira Glass

What is This American Life? It's "like movies for radio."

As you know, it’s been five years since new episodes of Car Talk have been produced, and the Best of Car Talk program ceases distribution this month. While there is no replacing our beloved Click and Clack, we will be moving an EQUALLY riotous program into the Saturday noon timeslot:  Wait, Wait…Don’t Tell Me


Ira Glass of This American Life recently made an appearance on Stephen Colbert's new TV show - which you never saw!

Colbert said some funny things about pledge drives.  He LOVES the pledge drive.

Does this seem strange to you? Watch what he said:

“One of America’s most prickly and most delicious, young comic talents.”The Washington Post

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.

I’m writing to tell you that tonight, This American Life and Marketplace will reveal that a story that we broadcast on This American Life this past January contained significant fabrications.
