This episode really made me feel... so touched. Especially the story is stated from the perspective of a granddaughter.
Thank you, Preet! Listening to your thoughts and insights into what a properly run justice system ought to look like is like therapy that helps me cope with the brazen madness that’s become the norm. Knowing that people like you are still able to speak out and maintain a large audience is a sign that America, as the founding fathers had conceived it, still exists and there is hope yet. But if things don’t work out in the almighty USA, please know that Canada is a great place to live and I would personally sponsor you if you ever needed asylum, and I’m not even rich. I just think that people like you are essential to have a civilized and functioning country and with the US in decline Canada and the rest of the free and open societies will need the best people to help protect ourselves from the same fate. I hope it’ll never come to that though.
As a Canadian, I don’t always get American culture. It confounds me sometimes. This podcast however is so accessible. The beautiful stories told about people in America serve to connect us all. It’s simply beautiful.
The show is usually really good. In depth stories are sometimes fascinating, sometimes pretty interesting, other times just meh. But the hosts have a tendency every once in a while to come off as very snooty and snarky about things that they disagree with, which is very annoying.
Ira glass is amazing. His delivery and tone of voice gets you sucked in within seconds. You can’t wait to hear the story. The subjects allow you to glimpse into their life and experiences and you are forever changed. Thanks so much for this show.
The bizarre ramblings of a once famous American author turned narcissistic weirdo. Also, has nothing to do with Paris.
With so many amazing podcasts out these days, TAL is sometimes overlooked. That’s a mistake. It remains required listening for all, especially with the recent coverage of white supremacy and racism. Ira is definitely one of my heroes, and has inspired me to learn how to make podcasts. Would just love to hear more stories about issues that take place outside of the US.
Love the stories and voices/personalities. Can't stand the one guy who does the opening advertisements with the nasally voice. Almost makes me avoid the episodes! Haha
This hands down is one of the best podcasts I’ve ever heard. Touches on all type of emotions and listening to it is like riding on an emotional roller coaster. I am so glad I found this.
This is such a great podcast! My only constructive feedback would be that it would be great to make it a little more international, the stories about American politics are not my favourite. Also, international ads would be a good way to use the international audience to attract more funding. Keep up the good work I love being able to peek into other people’s lives...
Always enjoy listening to TAL with my husband in the car. Every episode is informative and entertaining (also love the archive on their website). One of the highlights of our week. Listening to Ira is like scratching a hard to reach itch. He’s a great narrator/journalist.
I’m disappointed to not be able to access older episodes through apple podcasts. Having to download a separate app is not ideal.

As a non-American, the show provides a great insight to ‘American Life’.
LOVE my weekly This American Life fix. Always interesting with great & varied content.
A window into other people’s worlds to see others perspectives and gain an insight to another way of being.
This is probably the best podcast out there. Don't let the name put you off. As an Aussie these stories captivate me every week. TAL is just brilliant.
Love this show
The one that started it all. I truly believe Ira Glass is the reason podcasts took off. Absolutely brilliant content. He has introduced so many wonderful writers and thinkers to my life... Dan savage, David Rakoff, David Sedaris, Starlee Kine.. even Alex Blumberg... I will never stop listening!!!
I wait eagerly for Monday’s when a new episode of This American Life is released! No podcast is better than this! GB
Such great topics and really well edited. If you like this also try their spinoff which is Serial and Reply All. GB
I couldn't live without this podcast, it opens my mind and feeds my brain, never stop making this. GB
