I’ve been listening to this American Life for many, many years. Great, interesting stories told very well.

I love this American Life . It’s interesting, informative, touching, funny but mostly amazing. The end of Anatomy of Doubt almost made me lose control of my car . I was cursing and yelling out loud . Thank you every day 💕

This review is a rerun I did back in 2016: Ira hasn’t had an original idea since he insulted me at a 2015 meet and greet.

I simply love that!

Peggy, own it. You damaged a young woman based on your feelings. Feelings are not facts. OWN IT.

I love the stories, I just wish they would hide their hatred for Trump a little more.

I do not like episode 678 which said "It is easier to get people into Chernobyl". Do not joke on the heroes who saved our life.

There hasn’t been an original story in the longest time! It’s mostly re run previous shows all summer of 2019.

You make this stay-at-home mama very happy. Even while doing dishes and laundry and rocking babies to sleep. Thank you. Keep up the awesome, thorough, entertaining work.

This show used to be about American Life. It made me feel good about people who live in our country. Now it seems to be about the whole world and all the problems in it. It’s a bummer and I no longer look forward to each week’s episode. I hope it’s a rerun from when the show was heartwarming.

This used to be a good show but like most things these days it over plays its agenda. Disappointing.
Brother Ibis via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 10/02/19
I seriously love this show so much! I want more! I think that the only thing that would make it better is if they had more unarchived episodes.

I live in Amsterdam. This story about our fire brigade is wrong and off putting. The amsterdam fire brigade has always only been extremely helpful and kind to me. They helped me with bicycle trouble, helped breaking into my flat when i forgot my key, and twice saved my flat from burning down...Read full review »

I’ve been listening to This American Life for over twenty years, and I’m always fascinated by the topics.

Trump is an idiot and deserves to be in jail. He’s a ugly stupid rich person. Trump supporters are racist lunatics who are white and only care about themselves.

I used to love every episode for its variety and just crazy real stories. Quality reporting with clever twists and sometimes humor/ sometime tears. Then politics came creeping in and I rarely listen anymore. I the older days when politics was nonexistent. .

I rediscovered This American Life about 2 years ago, and have been an avid listener pretty much ever since. I just can’t get enough of this show! (And for good reason). It’s just incredible, and I love the thought that’s put into each episode. There’s just so much for me to love about this...Read full review »

This show is so sweet, and sad, and powerful! It is like a Norman Rockwell painting come to life set in the modern age. Stories of real Americans, real struggles, and slices of real life. I’ve rarely been so moved and so enriched by a podcast.

Your interview with the kidnapper of Frank Sinatra Jr was deeply offensive. Mr Sinatra was unfairly accused of staging the kidnapping, and the event had a major impact on his life. Shame on you for giving a forum to an amoral, heartless criminal.

Ira’s voice just makes me happy. Thank you!
LukeZane via Apple Podcasts · New Zealand · 09/25/19
I was listening to ten sessions and it suddenly my stopped and now is nowhere to be found. What happened!?
smje0501 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 09/24/19
Have been listening for years and loved each episode. Unfortunately the past few years the show has been unapologetically political - left leaning/liberal. Probably will be unsubscribing if it continues.

Meh
Re-runs. Re-runs. Re-runs.

I can’t stop listening to this podcast, it’s better than television. The way it’s presented captivates and entertains me endlessly.

I used to love this podcast - then I heard the one on the factchecking of the refugee crisis in Germany and what happened on New Year's Eve in Cologne 2015. The BBC "reporter" completely misled the audience in "omitting" the fact that the local police chief's initial report issued to the...Read full review »

I have been a listener for 5 years but for the last two years this podcast has been loaded with far left ideologies that leave anyone right of Ru Paul in the line of fire for constant insults.

I find it concerning that trump has a continued farce with Kim jung inn that attempts to lay a blanket of fear amongst his constituents (and others) that Kim lung would do something it’s merely a distraction tactic so thinking about it makes one wonder is the purpose to keep people from putting 1...Read full review »

It would be nice to have chapters between the stories so I can use a sleep timer to end of chapter. If you don’t know what I mean Accidental tech podcast does an amazing job with like 20 chapters over the hour episode for the different topics they talk about. Apart from that five star show!...Read full review »

Usually effete with every narrative reading trying to outdo the David Sedaris style.
BEATn1nja via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 09/10/19
Most episodes I enjoy hearing. I like the shows most when they tell a story about different Americans and what happens. I do not like when they read a fictional story. Even if it fits with the theme, I'd rather hear about actual people. One of my favorite episodes was when they sat in a diner for...Read full review »

Jamie Lowe’s story “Ten Sessions” was truly remarkable. I’m amazed by her storytelling ability and vulnerability. You’re talented and wonderful, Jamie! Thank you for sharing this journey you experienced with the world.

The end. Laugh and cry - thank me later.
lisahamiltonter via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 09/10/19
They’re not as good as you think they are! This podcast is indeed fun and humorous but less so when it appears production is getting lazy, which means the content is then tiresome and sleep inducing! This isn’t ASMR, it’s radio storytelling so please, keep the oldies on the shelf.
KBcarly via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 09/09/19
The first podcast that I found a couple years ago. I’ve heard every episode and enjoy them all. Thanks for a great show Ira! Kathy Pflugrad

Love the show, it is creative and makes one think. Unfortunately, it seems that this podcast is on cruise control and primarily repackages old episodes. Getting tired of episodes that I’ve heard from years ago.
U2Dan via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 09/06/19
This used to be a great podcast but ever since the fall of 2016 this podcast has been extremely biased in favor of liberals, which was almost certainly due to the rise of Donald Trump.
Chris-132 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 09/05/19
A Chicagoan. A writer. A major reader. This American Life has been my regular listening diet for years. Humor. Insight. Intelligence. Irony. Tragedy. Moments of total revelation. It’s Glass & team. So glad you’re here!
AVFine via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 09/04/19
TAL used to be a can’t miss podcast. But it’s become tedious and emotionally manipulative in a way that has strained my loyalty. And does everyone need to demonstrate vocal fry skills before becoming a “producer”? Good grief.

Great podcast episodes!, keep bring them!
