Don't know why but this podcast quit downloading to my old Ipod. I really enjoy the show each week but have to play it while online. Don't understand why it will not download anymore. Wish this could be fixed! Would rate it 5 stars if it would download.

I used to This American Life listen on the radio when I lived in the states - now I have to be satisfied with listening to every single episode of the podcast! Thanks Ira & the rest of the team for consistently putting out fascinating stories.

Loved this podcast so much I paid for the TAL app so I could hear them all. I started listening to other NPR podcasts as a result of listening to TAL. Love these stories, Great job Ira and the rest of the team. One suggestion, do a show on estate dispersal. Both my parents have passed in the last five years and both estate settlements have been the most stressful and terrible events in my life. My family has totally split and I know this was not my parents intended legacy. With the end of the boomer generation and the great passing of wealth estate lawyers are going to make a killing. There is such a crazy dynamic as to how heirs perceive their inheritance and the feelings of entitlement that often accompany an estate. While finishing nursing school I have learned more about estate law, capacity assessment, POAs, and matrimonial law than I ever thought possible. Just an idea; hope you run with it.

I just listened to Break Up and quietly sobbed my way home. It just so beautifully sad and sweet. Can’t we all have a Phil Collins for our breakups? It’s not just that episode, I’ve bought the app (because I’m obsessed) and every episode is a knockout and they are just getting better and better - exceptional reporting and storytelling. Thank you for your work!

Started at the latest episode about a year ago and went backwards through American history!.... Fascinating.... Particularly poignant was knowing that the wonderful and beautiful David Rackoff had died and then encountering him and his wonderful way with words in my backwards journey. ❤️

This podcast is literally my comfort podcast. I listen to it before I go to bed and when I’m stressed and it’s just perfect. It takes my mind off things and is thought provoking and interesting. Never ceases to entertain me.

This is my failsafe source of brilliant, informative and thought-provoking stories. This American Life can take anything and make a great story, but it usually uses stories to transport you into the world of an important cultural narrative so that you can more fully understand it.

Sometimes I just have to turn off due to the way in which some of the female speakers do that gravelly affected dip that trails off towards the end of their sentences. This appears to be a ‘thing’ with some American women - to a non-American, this assaults the ears :( GB
