This American Life, Season 1TV-MAClosed Captioning

Open iTunes to preview or buy TV shows.


Funny. Dramatic. Surprising. True. Boundary-pushing and adventurous, radio personality Ira Glass examines the details of life that go unnoticed — and transforms them into something humorous or poignant, enlightening or bizarre. From the tale of a man who so cherished his pet bull that he had him cloned, to the account of a 12-year old who doesn't believe in love, these are true stories which remind us that the remarkable lives in the everyday. You don't want to miss one episode of what the New York Post calls "unlike anything else you'll find on TV anymore — or maybe ever."

Customer Reviews

Just as great as the radio show!

If you’re a fan of the Public Radio show, you’ll love the television version. The first episode borrowed from past radio segments, but after that, it’s all new material… and it’s just as captivating and charming as the original. Great job Ira!!


So much has been said about the magic of this show in it's podcast form - please reference all the podcast reviews to get a feel of how this show is cherished. This smoothly transitions all the good things about the radio show into a TV format that for many, makes it even more compelling.
