    …worse than Ira Glass are the people who really like Ira Glass.

    New content

    Dear TALI’m so bored hearing old stories. There’s a lot in life at the moment and recirculating old stories makes me want to unsubscribe. Cmon y’all.

    Extra-ordinary

    A podcast where ordinary people - like you, or me, or your grandpa or your neighbour - are honoured and celebrated as heroes. “Small” stories are elevated and everyday life somehow begins to seem more hopeful and more joyful.

    The Stuff of Nightmares

    The episode Suitable for Children was horrific. I’m unsubscribed.

    Balance?

    It would be nice to hear the points and stories from people who had a conservative view of the world as well. The show just feels very left of center. Well done as far as music and production, though.

    Used to love it.

    I used to love This American Life and listened to every episode. But the woke, political content became more and more. The biased snide remarks that snuck into each episode was too much to overlook. I unsubscribed about a year ago. Today, I decided to try again and was really enjoying the “Getting Out” episode , right until Ira described an action as a “white man takes charge move”. When the lady says “my Dad’s not white”, Ira didn’t acknowledge his racist assumption or apologize. He doubles down about why he’d make that comparison. It’s not a good look at all, for the podcast or Ira, to allow this behavior. I guess the show will remain off my list to listen too. It’s really a shame, it could be so good!

    Ep. 744 should be essential listening

    A great look at the pandemic essential worker stories that never got told.

    The Best

    I started listening to This American Life when I was 14 years old. I am now 37, and I can state with confidence that I have listened to every episode they’ve ever made. It is my all time favorite program. This American Life has added so much beauty, inspiration, and knowledge to my life, and has challenged me to grow and change in really meaningful ways. I am so very grateful to the many people that have worked on this program.

    Lost me

    The beginning, I was sucked in.. heavily. Episode “Good Grief” had me immensely invested in hearing these stories from grieving parents and children. Relatable, and almost calming hearing them speak words I myself can’t get to exit my mouth. And then the obvious political views and siding started.. in this day and age, with all the separation in our day to day lives it was nice being able to relate to the people speaking about personal losses close to them. Not the show for me I guess.

    Used to be good but now they just recycle the same stories over and over. Needs more original content to stay fresh.

    Speech

    Have brought it up many times, to no avail. How come that this outstanding program pays so little attention to speech. Many of the speakers have a monotonous way of speaking. (EVERY sentence ends down and low point. Others often mumble their words, especially at the end of sentences (listen to Ira’s “mumbles”). Besides the fact that the result of mumbling is not understanding important information, the bad speech as a whole does damage to this great program. How is it possible that a RADIO program does not have people trained in speech delivery? Laziness? Arrogance? (This is how we talk, take it or leave it)It’s really too bad and sadFrans

    745 Getting out

    This is a must listen for any government official blocking access to visas. I’m an Australian citizen fed up with our current government’s stance. Prime Minister Scott Morrison, I challenge you to listen.

    Driveway Moments

    I started listening to This American Life before podcasts offered the ability to enjoy any show at leisure. While driving the kids to and from Sunday sports games we would often find ourselves sitting in the car on the driveway listening to the end of a show. Occasionally I would just go for a drive on a Sunday when the new show was scheduled to enjoy the program in peace. Over the years I have laughed, cried, been in awe, and brilliantly entertained by this wonderful production. Even with all the fantastic podcast choices out there this is still top of my feed and the first thing I turn on for my Sunday drive. Thanks for years of great listening!

    Rise and Fall of TAL

    I started listening to TAL in high school (early to mid 2000s). I listened to my favorite, old school episodes over and over. Episodes like the House on Loon Lake, Star-Crossed Love, the Fix is In, Act V, and the Call was Coming from the Basement. TAL started to loose its unique sparkle around 2010 and slowly morphed into the biased, lackluster podcast it is now. It’s too bad… I think TAL set the standard for a lot of podcasts. I was listening to one the other day (The Rise and Fall of Mars Hill). Sounds just like old school TAL. RIP TAL. I no longer listen or tell my friends to tune in.

    I used to never miss an episode. I can’t listen to it any more. Biased political garbage.

    One of the best

    Listened to This American Life for 10+ years now - one of the best, nearly always excellent, sometimes brilliant, and a fascinating mix of real life stories
