Podcast tip: This American Life


My first podcast tip can be none other than crowd pleaser This American Life that I was listening to before podcasts were a thing. The radio program was recommended to me by a friend who thought it was a great example of journalistic storytelling.

The radio documentary program This American Life has been presented every week by Ira Glass since 1995. Over five hundred radio stations now carry the show, and it is also available as a free download. In each of the weekly broadcasts, Glass presents three or four stories around a particular topic. These themes vary widely, from ‘impossible loves’ to ‘switched at birth’ to ‘returning to the scene of a crime’. With an audience of 1.8 million a week, this series has become one of the most popular documentary series in the world, and has won many awards.
