This American Life : About

Airs Tuesdays at 8pm on 93.9 FM, Saturdays at 1pm on 93.9 FM and 3pm on AM 820, and Sunday at 7pm on 93.9 FM and NJPR

A handheld camera for radio, This American Life takes an intimate look at the drama of the Everyman. Veteran producer Ira Glass shoots from the hip, exploring the lives of oddballs, antiheroes, and just plain folks who quietly fade into our homogenous national landscape. The program shares stories of life and love through monologues, documentaries, short radio plays, "found recordings," and original works for radio, giving you plenty of reasons to linger around the house.
