Harriet Court had me snorting and cry laughing. Such a creative mom and hilarious children.

very entertaining but needs more episodes

I miss the episodes about actual American life - framing an international story simply from a reporter’s perspective feels a little forced and disingenuous. I agree that this show has gotten away from what makes it great - I like the international episodes where there’s a specific tie back to an...Read full review »

Literally the Original Gangster of Radio!! Been listening to Ira before podcast was a word! What 25 plus years? Thank you for setting the bar and standard for telling stories about human beings being human! Well done!!!

Not enjoying the new acts that are neglecting to condemn the Hamas terrorism for the chaos and death brought to Palestinians & Israelis.
azza_42 via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 03/27/24
So biased and far from the truth. Please remember the voices from Gaza on October 7th. Cheers and praises to a dead violated woman body paraded in the streets, her violated and mutilated body thrown on a pick up truck. Barbaric and inhumane. We will never forget !! Uncivilized voices from Gaza!!
potatoing via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/26/24
So disappointed with their story in the Gaza “reporters”. No mention of these “journalists” tied to Hamas, huh? Conveniently left those people off the list to tell their stories. NPR is so biased against Israel - it is pretty disgusting. I’ve been a long time listener but they’ve lost me now.

I’ve listened to every one of the over 800 episodes. I laugh I cry I reflect. This show is great and Ira and team def slay it. TYSM. ❌❌Valerie from 🇨🇦

This podcast is great and funny and you can’t help LOVING it.
Meiscoolbro via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/23/24
I listen to many podcasts and this is the first one I put on each week. Great stories thoughtfully presented. Ira and the staff here are amazing.
Andrewinsd via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/21/24
Not balanced but i enjoy the ones i enjoy. Just take it with a grain of salt
Shüli via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/18/24
Ira, love the podcast, and holding out hope you do the right thing and condemn Hamas for the terrorists that they are. October 7th was the invasion of a sovereign country, and systemic slaughter of people at a concert, including women and children. There is still a 1 year old and a 4 year old...Read full review »

I do love the intermittent music in the show. I don’t want world views to be brought forward!! The episode topics are pleasurable and at my age 68 and that’s ok by me. This American Life makes me think with the stories. I’mAussie and like the insightful stories that challenge me and make me think...Read full review »

I love this show, I love that we got to hear Yumna’s story. But, for an episode that is about “the words to say it”, it leaves a whole lot out. Yumna’s family has had to evacuate countless times not because of a natural disaster. The words are there, I encourage the producers to use them. Yumna’s...Read full review »

Ira Glass is so seamlessly compelling that there is none better. He is the father of podcasts for me because my love of podcasts began with This American Life a long time ago. To agree with another reviewer he will indeed leave you crying in the Target parking lot. ❤️

I thought it was just me. If you read the Bible, see how it speaks to you personally. Churches do not have a monopoly on what the Bible says. You do not need anyone to interpret it for you. Thanks TAL, this show has been bringing me joy since the 90’s ❤️
silence_event via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/12/24
Don’t get me wrong this was an amazing podcast but… the story’s now days are on modern problems and I want a story. I want there to be more episodes like in the past.
Sub2Teejlyfe via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/11/24
That a show run by a Jewish person would be so quiet about October 7th, when Israelis were slaughtered and raped en masse while their wicked tormenters laughed and cheered, and then make such efforts to virtue signal with the people of Gaza. Both are correct, if both are equally covered. When...Read full review »

when people in podcasts talk about podcasts, they are literally comparing themselves to this american life . ie host 1: "i wish my audio was clearer when i have to record from home"; host 2: " what mike are you using there"; host 1: "same as in studio but like on 'this...Read full review »

I’ve been an Audible.com listener since before smartphones so I could listen to this show. Now it is available via podcast. Real life from real people.
vetmike92 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/08/24
TAL you can do much much better. It the previous episode talking to Yousef you continued to call the genocide on Palestinians a war, we all know it’s not a war. Word are powerful, you should know this. In this episode you made a kebutz sounds lovely and wonderful, how do you think the...Read full review »

The show is attempting to evolve with the times, sometimes managing to do so effectively. Other times, it's lost the magic that long positioned it as the gold standard in radio storytelling.Read full review »

Thanks a lot for ruining me for other podcasts by making your stories so entertaining and thought provoking and heartwarming and challenging. Every other show feels flat to me now.
katherine krosley via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/06/24
This story was in bad taste. Very hard to listen to a family talk about how their kids were bored in a hotel. I have listened to this show since the mid 90s and it was gross to listen to them simp for Netanyahu.
melrrrrrrrrrrrrr via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/03/24
It took me over a year to start from the beginning and listen to every single episode. So very grateful that I was able to appreciate each and every one. Love all the bonus material on their website.
Lhooq999 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/02/24
This show is just a vehicle for pro-Israel messaging now. Unfollowing immediately and encourage others to do same. Shame on you, NPR

Imagine complaining about living in a luxury hotel when there is millions of Palestinians who are homeless and hungry. The audacity.
ElsaNora via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 02/29/24
The Jane Doe episode is highly biased. Yet just another one of these me to foamed up whipped crazy hysteria pieces. They called the supporters of the accused, sympathisers and of course that’s a biased term that seeks to discredit those who don’t immediately fall into line and believe an accuser....Read full review »

This episode unfortunately sympathized with a family a family from Israel. I’m sure as many should know the culture in Israel is oppressive, racist and genocidal toward Palestinians. I felt irritated that this family was the subject of misfortune while Palestinians have suffered so much more....Read full review »

The show has changed from heartwarming slices of life to “important journalism”. It’s still good most of the time, but it seems like a different show than the one I originally loved. Maybe the title should be changed as the focus has shifted to the global stage. I preferred this show when it was...Read full review »

Mabelsyrupdoe via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/22/24
This was my favourite podcast - I especially enjoyed the extensive covering of the Ukraine invasion. But the brief Gaza mentions (yes even the on ep talking to someone trapped in the concentration camp) honestly feel like a ‘both sides’ covering your asses tactic. This is a literal genocide and I...Read full review »

Every week this show is outstanding, unpredictable and the best podcast ever. You never know, but you know it will be superb
scarlettsmom via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/19/24
I truly believe the world would be a better place if everyone listened to this show, which isn’t to suggest that it’s pedantic or preachy, oh no. It’s simply human and real and perfect.

Charcharjiazi via Apple Podcasts · China · 02/18/24
The first few episodes I listened to were really good. But then every episode had at least one story involving homosexuality. To be honest, I do not have any problem with people who love each other being together. In the world we live in today, I say if you can find love, take it. I wish the...Read full review »

I’ve been listening for over a decade to this and now many other podcast and I truly believe TAL is the best of them all. Thank you for all that you do, the variety, the opinions, the stories. ❤️

This show borders on beyond perfect if that’s possible
cloudman1 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/12/24
I used to love this show. I couldn’t wait for the Sunday realeaae. Now every episode is virtue signaling, political or LGBT. I wish the show would return to normal content.
