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.
