The first and most important podcast I read all day but hate reading and love listening and love wonderful content. So this is for me.

Ducky? I'm listening to some crazy woman imitate a duck in the stupidest bit of radio I've heard in a long time. They used to do good stuff on this show but this is so lame. I'm disappointed.Read full review »

It’s simply the podcast of our generation.

Can’t help but wonder why people who aren’t American citizens are the topic. Also having a hard time figuring out why Trump has turned this pod into a bunch of mindless worker bees...?

Used to like it, but it’s turned into nothing but one-sided politics. Bleh.
Samanthaqc via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 11/26/19
Used to listen to this all the time when they’d have a diverse library, but then in 2016 Donald Trump became president. I would love some unpolitically bias stories, maybe one out of 10 wouldn’t be bad.

I have been listening for over six years and am a huge fan. The four of five stars is a reflection of what seems to be a move from interesting and entertaining themes and stories to moderately entertaining and entertaining themes and stories that are “woke”. Seems like back in the day there...Read full review »

The amount of vocal fry in many of the contributors is astounding and distracting. The content is great (even when I disagree with it) and I feel like I learn so much from this show. So many topics, so many range of emotions-it is fantastic. I just wish the constant vocal frrrryyyyyyyyyyyy was...Read full review »

Alle dem der elsker denne, lever i underklassen og bruger vand til deres havregryn
Theixeman via Apple Podcasts · Denmark · 11/20/19
But today’s episode made me angry. Don’t blame the U.S. for the immigration issues.
addsho via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 11/19/19
I used to be a huge fan for many years, until they started in with a lot of political opinion pieces. When it comes to that type of topic, I just delete the podcast for that week, and I don’t listen. When it talks about personal stories, slices of life, those are the stories that I love, and they...Read full review »

Beautiful, inspiring, and devastating. These stories are filled with heart and are masterfully told. Ira Glass is the father of podcasting.

What else is new? Pro big government. Leftist. Some stories that leave out politics are great. Otherwise, it can get frustrating. Yes. Please don’t come to my Country expecting us to support you. We didn’t expect it. We built it.
Sharyn rm via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 11/19/19
We experience enough political opinion in day to day life . I go to podcasts to usually escape all that unless I am explicitly looking for political podcasts I must say the shows are well written and executed . The reason for the 3 stars is this new digression into the world of political opinion...Read full review »

Meh
Was once a great show, but sadly has become obviously far left leaning.
Farmerted74 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 11/18/19
It’s Glass’ most recent podcast, The Out Crowd should be required listening for all Americans. It gets to the human reality behind the headlines.
Rick in Marietta via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 11/18/19
I don’t listen to podcast for political purposes. This is extremely liberal. If you are liberal then you will love it. I am one that doesn’t want to hear any side pushed.
Abbacdefgh via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 11/18/19
Endless enjoyment. A smorgasbord of superb human life displayed on an expertly produced and seamless audio platform. The diverse eclectic nature of the show is guaranteed to delight the senses. Namaste Ira!

TAL encourages my curiosity & promotes my interest in all subject matter. I have an inherent drive to always learn a solid foundation of knowledge on an infinite amount of subjects that interest me , cross my path or impact my life.

So good!
jones soda via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 11/14/19
A show for people who what to know stuff, are ninjas, and ponder why the sky is blue. It’s better than that! It’s good information for people who strive to be better people, parents, spouses, friends, and employees.

Cutest, smartest kid ever begins this episode. I never tire of this podcast. Brilliant.

Listening from Finland. I wait each week for a new episode. Just love the tone of the show and the quality of the stories.

I love this podcast, it’s really empathetic and soothingly fun to listen to.
Wina Obake via Apple Podcasts · Mexico · 11/12/19
Please .. stop with the horrible comedy tedx style shows....
tkizy011281 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 11/09/19
I look forward to this podcast every week, but feel disappointed when it’s a “live show” I find them irritating, whiny and impersonal
lmkabs via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 11/07/19
Slow down. You talk too fast. Are you running the tape at 1.5 speed? Great show but I would like to relax more when I listen.

Learn so much every time. I am an audio learner.
smaxmo5 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 11/06/19
I listen to a lot of podcasts and this is one of my favorites. Good storytelling!
CNY Fan via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 11/05/19
Very well chosen and informing topics , with an interesting layout. the podcast allows different points of views without attempting to sway you a certain way but for the story to unfold itself. Love it.
Fee In dha house via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 11/05/19
This was pretty much my first podcast subscription. I always find it interesting and often amusing. Even as they update re-runs there is something interesting and beautiful there. I really enjoy the David Sedaris moments as well.
snoelr via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 11/04/19
Don’t miss the Halloween episode! All good but the very last 15 minute segment was laugh out loud funny!
Barb in Milton via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 11/03/19
Really opening my eyes. Things I thought were of no interest to me, things I thought I knew, you made these things important, special and deserving of some thought! You all are awesome, love you!
infaithus via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 11/01/19
There’s really not much more to say. This American Life is powerhouse for stories. It provides ample amounts of thought-food for those who are desperate for something profound and novel. Enjoy.
Guy202 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 10/30/19
Thank you so much for the wonderful episode on what is transpiring in Hong Kong. It was eye opening to hear the experiences of what life is like there. It seems as though the protesters want the same freedoms Americans fought the British for in our early history, to not be ruled by another...Read full review »

this podcast was truly the podcast that got me into listening to podcasts and I excitedly listen to the episodes every Monday! would recommend to everyone I know.
madiskend via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 10/27/19
This is the only podcast I subscribe to. Admittedly, I wish they’d lay off the politics a bit. My favorite episodes were called Camp, and Mystery at Loon Lake, Babysitting, and Poultry Slam. The episodes where they dived into every lives and found joyful, fascinating stories. Still, it’s my...Read full review »

It was the best forever. It was the only one forever. Then it became political. Then it did what the rest of the world does and drew our attention to politics and wars. I got a boxed set of this show for my wedding which I cherished. Then the show just got lazy and did politics and wars and I...Read full review »

Wow
I love the texture given with each story helping me to feel present.

This is my first time commenting on podcast. Even my first time commenting on anything as far as I can recall. Strangely enough, I have heard only one episode of this podcast— Umbrella Up. I’m now on a subway, and I’m literally crying (sniffing) on it after I just finish listening to Umbrella up...Read full review »

The episode “Umbrella Up” is by far one of the best episodes on This American Life. Absolutely, lovely job done making this documentary!

When one participant in NYC’s Caribbean Day parade says to The This American Life reporter that the police and NYC media irresponsibly [my word] view and report on the parade as violent, I was angry at how the majority culture in the US projects it’s own transgressions on to others.

Thank you for doing an episode on the riots in Hong Kong! It was so helpful 😁
Red19922 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 10/21/19
Episode 686, “Umbrellas Up” is why I have mostly stopped listening to TAL. Instead of intriguing, fascinating, often esoteric stories of life in America, as this program once was, we today get a story on Hong Kong protesters. You’ve lost your way… if you’re bored or out of ideas, just shut it down.
Herk123 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 10/21/19
This is utterly inspired. People standing up for the concept of democracy. If only America could follow that energy. I need to do more. Inspired to do so as I wipe the tears.
stoverpix via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 10/21/19
I have loved TAL for many years. I look forward to the podcast every week. It’s moving, and thought provoking and entertaining. The past few years the podcast has become overly political. I enjoy learning about our country but I miss the podcast before President Trump.
