    Slippin, fallin, can’t get up

    Used to be my favorite. Now it’s a launchpad for woke spin-offs.

    This American Life is the BEST!

    Ira Glass is a storyteller that was born to be a storyteller. Ya know how you can just TELL that someone is doing what they’re meant to do. That’s how this podcast is. Each story is well done and will leave you smiling to yourself at least once. It’s unpretentious and full of thoughtfulness and care is always given to the subject matter. It warms my heart each time I listen to this podcast.

    My First and All-Time Favorite Podcast

    I’ve been listening to This American Life since it was a radio program. It was the first podcast I started streaming. I have tons of podcasts I listen to now but This American Life is still my all time favorite. I listen every week. It’s so consistent. Always riveting. Love it.

    Used to be great

    Agree with the other reviewers. I’ve listened to this podcast since before podcasts were a thing. Used to be so interesting about just average Americans— the rest stop episode, kids swearing, the werewolf babysitter, the abandoned house on the lake, the breakup episode with starli. They were great, an escape. Now everything stems from identity politics and political slants. Regardless of your political affiliation, I used to come here for those simple lovely stories and they are now missing. Now I pass on this one unfortunately. I loved Ira!!

    The only problem is Ira

    He’s so impersonal it sets such a drab tone for the rest of the podcast.

    Political divisive stories shrouded as “American Life”

    Each week the program focuses on yet another politically divisive issue. Please return to your gems that used to appeal broadly to those who are progressive as to those who are tea party members (I am neither). Let’s put out stories which can unite all of us as Americans and not just feed the woke beast.

    There are some really good episodes. There are also some really average episodes.

    The Best. Period.

    ***Edit: Keeping the 5 star rating, but please PLEASE put a notification of repeat episode in the episode title, or AT LEAST at the beginning of the episode, rather than burying it midway through the show. If Reveal and Snap Judgement can do it, so can you . Listener from back in the day here. Hands down the best . Thank you!!!

    Episode: Amateurs

    I do love this show, the story telling is great. However, I just listened to the opener for the episode “amateurs” and it was incredibly disappointing. Highlighting a white, wealthy couple and their vendetta to get teenagers locked up in prison, affecting the rest of their lives, throwing them into our broken criminal justice system because the white couple forgot to lock their balcony door and were robbed reeks of privilege and a lack of self reflection especially during this moment of examining the American policing and court system. This completely misses the mark and makes me not want to listen to this show that I do love so much. Do better Ira Glass.

    Used to be my favorite show

    They’ve been infected with the same brain worm the rest of NPR has. Incredibly boring now.

    AMAZING, however return to the old please.

    My favorite podcast it is truly in a class by itself! However I would recommend that you go back to the old style of story telling and skip the political commentary.

    Mostly repeats

    Sadly, although this is a great podcast, if you’ve listened for a few years, as I have, you find yourself listening to the same podcasts over and over again. Doesn’t NPR have enough new material to create a new show each week? Great journalists and great stories but so often (eg: this week) I’m left thinking ‘Oh, this story again’. I would give them five stars, but for this annoyance.

    Individual episodes or stories from this podcast stay with me in a way that not many others do. Consistently brilliant.

    Too much op-Ed

    Been listening since the beginning—and what’s going on? Remember the Chicago diner episode? The rest stop? Squirrel cop? Nearly every story in the past year has just been super boring amd “topical.” Please return to doing the stories that no one else does.
