Never ceased to amaze me
When I lived in America for three years this weekly program on public radio never ceased to amaze me with the stories it told. It is not just the content of the stories, but the way they are told in a matter of fact manner. Thank you for making this a podcast - I have missed it back here in London.
I've been streaming this from NPR for over a year now. Very pleased to see that it looks like it will now be on itunes. Can suffer from whimsy, but entertaining stuff nonetheless.
Definitely worth listening to
This podcast has something interesting every week. Every one of these is worth listening to at least once. I have come to love some of the regular contributors, and This American Life is now an important part of my weekly routine. Definitely give this a go.
