For fans of: TAL radio show, creative nonfiction, quirky documentaries.

Drawing on a different theme each week, viewers hear compelling stories from everyday folks culled from six months on the road. Host Ira Glass and company create a captivating look at the American Life in a series that’s not quite documentary, not much of a news magazine and definitely not a reality show – it’s simply unlike anything else. And don't forget to check out Season 2!
