This American Life
Saturdays at 1 p.m. and Sundays at 5 p.m.
- Hosted by Ira Glass
Take in a slice of Americana with critically acclaimed host Ira Glass on This American Life. Each week he picks a theme, then gives his writers and performers the freedom to weave real stories from real people around that theme in a manner they find most engaging. You'll meet fascinating people with stories that range from heart-warming to bizarre.
Glass and company try interesting things and take radio where it's never gone before. It's a show that defies description, but has become one of public radio's most celebrated programs.
Produced by Chicago Public Radio.
