This American Life

This American Life LG

Saturday 7 -8 p.m. and Sunday 4 - 5 p.m.

A playful mix of radio monologues, mini-documentaries, "found tape," short fiction and unusual music used to explore a theme — fiascos, conventions, the job that takes over your life — during each weekly program. Built around the innovative personal vision of host Ira Glass, "This American Life," quite literally, pioneered a new kind of radio storytelling.
