    Why no pre-2020? Great podcast but why no pre 2020

    I’ve been listening to this American life since 2014-2015 and loved it. So disappointed to see the episodes pre-2020 are no longer available.

    Still great after all these years

    For those who want to trash talk this show, maybe work on making a better world to tell stories about and we all wouldn’t have to keep talking about politics, the virus, and how both have disrupted our lives. If your feelings are hurt, maybe it’s because the truth hurts, and it’s time to sit and be humble and self reflective for a while. I will always love this show for its honest storytelling, and the respect and care with which they treat the people they interview, and their curious approach to the lives we all lead. Ira and the crew he’s surrounded himself with are endearing. Nothing and no one is perfect, and this show is no exception, but it’s humble whimsy is delightful and poignant.

    Too Political

    Used to love this show, now they throw there politics at you every time. Hurts my feelings, I’m gone.

    Trash Radio

    For trash people. The first in a long line of squishy, affected, overproduced, and generally lame radio programs

    A true gem!

    I have been listening to this podcast since the beginning. I even have a double cassette tape of favorite episodes that I got as a gift for donating to NPR. “The Apology Line” is on it and it is such a powerful episode, I’m not sure if it is available in the archives. The other episode that left a big impact on me is “Conventions”. Specifically the story told by John Perry Barlow.... I listened to it when it was first released years ago. His story is something that has stayed with me for years. I was thrilled that this episode was replayed this week. I just love this podcast so much, thank you Ira!!!

    Sad to Say Goodbye

    This was the very first podcast I’d ever listened to. I can remember my first episode (the raccoon with rabies) and I absolutely fell in love. I run practically everyday and for at least a year I think I listen to only this podcast. The stories were amazing, interesting, funny (I’d be running and laughing) and none that I’d heard before. I enjoyed every minute of them. Unfortunately, the stories are no longer enjoyable. I feel a hidden agenda. I can no longer listen to an episode without “one part”having a political reference. I no longer can get my runners high and escape the world and have a good laugh with this podcast. I am truly sad to say goodbye but I have to unsubscribe.

    Slow down!

    You have great topics but the narrators talk much too fast. I give up each time. It’s like listening to a beehive.

    Disruptive

    The music has become so disruptive and makes it hard to listen the actual content. Why is it even necessary?!

    This show fell way off

    I was a huge fan for several years but now that they moved away from meaningful, heavy-hitting stories every episode feels pretentious and empty.

    Ira and his crew have accomplished something special here

    I’ve been listening to this show for years and I have always loved the heartfelt stories especially. Ira’s curiosity for others and how he reports on things that may not necessarily align with his own beliefs has always impressed me. He often approaches beliefs with a genuine curiosity that doesn’t come off as judgmental but an interest to try and understand and as a result, produces a show that seems to really focus on people and their stories and care for humankind. This latest episode on grief has been particularly impressive and the shows ability to dive into the grief of those who have passed from COVID, when most outlets are just trying to forget and move on from such a hard time has been so cool in my humble opinion. I’m not sure how you make it work but please keep producing this content it’s so important and makes an impact!

    Move on to other topics

    When I first started this podcast, I enjoyed it, looking forward to the next episode. But the most recent episodes, (post-pandemic) have gone downhill. It’s like they forgot there are other topics besides the virus & politics. Every episode ties back to one or the other. I know you skim your reviews...move on with other topics.

    Tired of liberal jabs and vocal fry!

    Sometimes the topics are interesting, even light and fun but you still never cease to put your liberal spin on every topic. Newsflash - Some of us still believe in God, and that America is intrinsically good. And the vocal fry!!!! Girls, please stop this madness and find your true voice. I’m out. Unsubscribed

    I used to love this podcast. Listened to every episode. It’s too political now though, and I’m just about finished with it.
