I’ve loved this show for years!
My AP Language teacher introduced me to this podcast junior year of high school with the episode about the highs and lows of performing Shakespeare in prison. I have loved This American Life ever since, especially since being in college for the Pat few years. I appreciate the breadth and depth of the show. I love the deep dives into the day to day of a politician, like the episode about Jeff Flake and his fight for DACA. I also cannot tell you how much I love the radio musical episode as well. I show 21 Chump Street to anyone who will listen/watch it with me. Thank you for humanizing so many different stories and issues in ways that allow me to feel both connected to and challenged by each and every theme and podcast. I hope I can listen to this podcast for many years to come!

Compelling, profound, painful and uplifting, I can never...Read full review »
