    Need a repost

    Can you post episode 47 again?. Christmas and Commerce. I’ve been told to listen and can’t access it.

    Curse words

    I like the show very much. But I don’t like curse words and just about every show has the warnings that say this show has curse words and go to the web site for bleeped out curse words. I find that annoying. I wish that the curse words were bleeped out on the pod cast too. Thanks.

    What Happened?

    I used to look forward to this show but fell away from it. I “rediscovered” it recently and found they are simply rehashing the same episodes I heard many time before. There’s also an annoying trend of taking several stories with a similar theme and stringing them together to create a “new” episode. I’m a proud supporter of public radio and regret this show still gets funding. It’s a hollow shell of what used to be a very innovative and insightful program.

    Useful idiots

    Just listened to The Longest Distance Between Two Points. The interview with the Chinese person seems like a cute little story about the CCP treating its citizens like slaves, and "it's not so bad".This podcast is full of reporters, who cannot think for themselves.

    Thought-provoking, educational, powerful

    I’ve listened to This American Life since 2017, when I first got on the podcast bandwagon. Every episode speaks to me in some way, or, at the very least, gives me a good chuckle. Many episodes keep me thinking and researching long after they end. But episode 777 “Name. Age. Detail.” hit my heart, gut, and soul in a way no other episode has. Beautifully touching, painfully necessary, powerfully articulated. Thank you for sharing the victims’ stories and amplifying their voices—and countless others’ in previous episodes—through this platform.

    Thank you

    I have listened to this show for over two decades and loved every moment of it. After episode 777 I’ve finally written my long overdue gratitude. What a beautiful remembrance of those wonderful and complex people who should still be with us. It was so pretty. I started listening while walking and had to turn it off so my neighbors didn’t see me bawling all down the street. The writers did such an amazing job. If only all obituaries could be so poignant and lovely. Thank you for remembering the lives and contributions of people who were loved and should not have been taken from us.

    Is this what podcasts are about?

    I wish I would’ve came across this show long time ago. I mean when I did, it was a 3 hour of empathetical education. Listen it for yourself!

    Too liberal

    You can do journalism without a public slant. I’ve listened to your show for over a decade but it seems you feel a subsection of the populace must rule over the ignorant. Who lets you decide Who lets you be holier and mightier Report. Be funny. Be smart.

    This American Life

    My first podcast, my favorite podcast, the best podcast. I've been listening for years and stupidly, never rated it. TAL is a treasure that brings stories to life. Stories about people like you and me and the people down the street. There are many episodes that will stay with you the rest of your life. There is no podcast quite like it.

    Simply the best

    Some of the most heartfelt, moving and funny stories ever put together. Nothing makes me happier than listening to a new episode.

    Great show, produced by people who don’t know how to use the apple podcast app.

    A great perfect show/podcast! However for the past couple years, they keep uploading their new episodes in some weird way that marks it as played and it never appears in my feed. This is the only podcast out of several dozen Ive subscribe to over the past 6 years that does this. I spent hours troubleshooting my phone thinking I was doing something wrong. I bought a brand new phone. Over two years-I missed over 6 months of new episodes because they just never came up. I thought the show was canceled. Then I realized they’re being automatically marked played and not appearing. I contacted apple tech support but they said this appears to be a bug on the end of the show producer. I hoped they would figure it out, but two years and they never did. Still, I need to remind myself to go to the TAM page once a week and click “play again” on the brand new episode even if it was just uploaded 2 minutes prior. I really hate smart phones. I wish my red county would actually transmit NPR so I could just listen to the radio. The amount of time I spent just troubleshooting this one issue makes me want to take a hammer to this stupid thing society forces me to carry around at all times. Ok well time for me to go replay an episode I never heard before, I forgot to search the TAM page and click replay last night when it went up, good thing I actually remembered to waste 20 minutes this morning manually searching for it. Hope it was worth it…

    So... uhh... well... just read.

    So cool and so funny! We always get to hear an interview and learn some interesting things. But... it’s very biased. It talks about some very controversial subjects, and you can tell that Ira is DEFINITELY on one side and almost... forces... you to believe the same thing. It’s almost like your being made to feel bad because you maybe don’t believe the same things she does. Other than that I live for this podcast and will NEVER miss a show. Well. At least after I get all caught up... 😓
