It's a pretty rare occasion that I get to actually listen to This American Life. In case you've never heard of it, it's a radio show that plays on NPR. I'm not certain, but I don't believe that it actually airs on our local station here in Springfield. I typically just catch it if I'm on a long road trip. It really is one of the most fascinating radio shows ever made.
This is the host, Ira Glass:
If you haven't seen an episode yet, it's worth your time. You have to have a little bit of patience though, most stories start out as being strikingly common and normal. That's what makes the show so magical; they are telling old stories from such a fresh point of view.
Thanks for reading.
