Feels empty

This show is not giving us much anything anymore. The last couple oof episodes have been shockingly stale, distracted and most of all confusing.

The Best

Sometime TAL has the ability to bring up feelings in us. Feelings that were just below the surface. Good feelings ? Absolutely. Lots of laughs on the show but there’s also stories that can tug hard at the heart. Those about grieving and loss. Those that might make us take a look at ourselves or a certain behavior. And sometimes people don’t want to get introspective. Don’t want to hear political talk (meaning don’t want to hear left leaning political talk) Don’t want to hear fast talkers and don’t want to hear a growls. That’s ok TAL will continue inspiring, educating, and entertaining! Ive been listening for over 13 years Im pretty sure there’s an episode for everyone.That one episode you just never forget.. well there’s more than one, but the one that comes to mind is Child Logic. yeah I’m a podcast nerd and TAL is the OG of podcasts. I recommend and give 5 stars

amazing, compelling stories

I absolutely LOVE this podcast. The stories are all very different but equally compelling and interesting. I’ve even downloaded the app to go back to listen to episodes in their archive. I look forward to the new weeks where new episodes come out. A great podcast for someone looking to learn more about the world and other people via great storytelling.

Soothing

I love Ira’s voice, the narrative arc of each episode, and the ultimate reflection of all the stories as it relates to each episodes theme. I truly love this podcast, I have been listening since 2011.

I don’t like the way they do their shows now- long monologuessssss of storytelling. Used to be so much better

This American Life

Ira if you’re sick don’t do a podcast. Your voice was so annoying and I couldn’t listen to you. I know you said you were fine, but it was terrible. Sorry, don’t mean to be mean but this is a review.

American in Paris

I hated this episode. A strange wannabe eclectic but just an insecure pathetic man in Paris who criticizes tourists as being mundane and all the same.

Anti-progressive show

After listening to the “wannabes” show I was surprised by the omission of Tulsi Gabbard and the slandering of Bernie Sanders at the end. Then he said this episode is sponsored by rocket mortgage and Chase bank. Then it made sense.
