This American Life Reviews
i use to love this show but apparently now a days all they can talk about is covid or blm. there are a million other topics you could be talking about since those two subjects are everywhere else. highly disappointed in what it's become. between that and constant reruns, this show has gone downhill quickly. this show use to be able to make you laugh, have heart, and show integrity.
This podcast is so well written and the structure of the stories are so thought out that you will look forward to each new episode.
This American Life helps me see what life in the United States is like not just for me but for my neighbors in other parts of my city, my state, and country. Thank you and keep telling high-quality, diverse stories!
This podcast is an example of doing something with PASSION and with EXCELLENCE. It is thought provoking, full of variety, and informative.
This podcast has left me speechless we have been bamboozled, hoodwinked, run amok and quite literally been led astray!
Starting about a year ago, I can no longer listen to episodes from the archives without it constantly cutting out. I restart it and then it cuts out again. I have emailed TAL for advice numerous times and received no response. Anyone else have this issue?
I rarely review podcasts but have been listening to This American Life for years. Huge fan. Just listened to the episode with the reading from In the Dreamhouse. Wow, what a painfully beautiful account that left me wanting more. Thank you for featuring this piece of work. Keep up the great work!
The prom episode was so incredibly boring. I can’t believe they would re-broadcast this.
This podcast was one of my favorite but they’ve become another coronavirus podcast recently.
If there are 10 things in life I would not want want to give up - the weekly TAL is one. It is so current and so insightful. Thank you TAL!!
Hard to listen to through all the bias
Sadly only 4 episodes can be listened to on here and any podcast app, however all previous episodes can be found on their website at thisamericanlife.org
I look forward to this program every week - when the news here gives us every reason to think the US is just crazy, the intelligent, authentic and nuanced segments here give a ray of hope. Love your work - it makes me think!
I look forward to them and can’t wait for new releases. I love the topics and the way they are explored. Thought provoking. Enlightening. Interesting.
The most awe inspiring, insightful, poignant, funny, interesting, beautiful, eye opening podcast/radio show ever.
Chuck Norris and Superman once arm wrestled. The bet was that who ever lost would have to wear his underwear over his pants - forever.
Ira’s voice just makes me happy. Thank you!
It would be nice to have chapters between the stories so I can use a sleep timer to end of chapter. If you don’t know what I mean Accidental tech podcast does an amazing job with like 20 chapters over the hour episode for the different topics they talk about. Apart from that five star show! Love it! Listen regularly every week!
As a non-American, the show provides a great insight to ‘American Life’.
Surprisingly great stories... I sometimes initially read the podcast description & think, this doesn’t seem that interesting. You never know though. They’re all very well done & entertaining!

Thanks so much for your shows. Excellently though out and presented. I have known your show for several years but now smart phone technology allows me to listen more. It is such a pleasant break from the mainstream media. Please take this the right way- it is so heartening to hear so much intelligence and love for stories. We get the nutty - disturbing side of the USA. Trump, Gun Violence, Race issues and your shows along with others I take remind me of how intelligent and thoughtful people in the USA can be. Thanks and keep it going. Wayne in Sydney Australia
Storytelling at its best
So well deserved - constantly fascinating, insightful and first class journalism into so very many corners of our society that need airing GB
I love it GB
But this podcast is so beautifully done. Many times I’ve been walking around the city and broken down listening to some of these stories. The range of stories are broad and take listeners to every corner of the globe, shedding light on so many issues that are left out of the news. I’m so appreciative to listen in and anticipate episodes every week as I know I’ll be able to really switch off from the world for an hour or so. Ira is such a fantastic host with an incredibly calming tone and I’ve loved listening to him as well as the stories that the team put together. Thank you! GB
I have just three things to teach: simplicity, patience, compassion. These three are your greatest treasures.
