This American Lie is a fully improvised Public Radio show based on that other Public Radio Show with a very similar name. Tune in for an hour of "HILAR-UDITE" entertainducation. It's smart, it's droll, it's made possible by listeners like you.

Customer Reviews

Hilarious Parody

Professionally trained, comedian improvisors create a hilarious hour long episode affectionately parodied from the popular public radio program, and the magical, hilarious, results speak for their selves.

I write this as the series debuts with episode 1, and I'm beyond amused, listening to the same episode twice, literally guffawing during each listening session. Whether you are an ardent fan of the shows inspiration or simply enjoy humor, you will love this podcast.

If you are still skeptical for some reason, look up a channel on the ye ole Tubes of You called Kill Bots, especially the playlist within named Full Episodes (of a series call "Watch Immediately") And you will know who the people behind his program are capable of.

Spot On

Such a great idea! Super funny and spot on humor. If you like This American Life, you gotta give this a shot, you'll love it!

They totally nail it.

This podcast is such a great concept and they totally nail it. The host, the music, the's a hilarious parody of that other great podcast. If you enjoy This American Life, you'll love this!
