Always a staple in the public radio community now I can listen to my favorite episodes in podcast form. Enjoyable, informing, and always allows me to enjoy a good listen, Ira Glass is always on point.
The elder statesman of podcasting has not lost its touch or panache for telling some of the most interesting and compelling stories in any medium. While every episode is at least above average, when This American Life hits on a good story, it's talked about the world over.
Wonderful podcast. They typically tell a few different short stories every week but will sometimes focus on one longer story. They have made me laugh and also have brought me to tears. Meaningful reporting and investigative journalism at its finest.
