Love, love, LOVE!

This is such a great podcast! My only constructive feedback would be that it would be great to make it a little more international, the stories about American politics are not my favourite. Also, international ads would be a good way to use the international audience to attract more funding.
Keep up the good work I love being able to peek into other people’s lives...

“Hi, I’m Ira Glass...” Iconic.

Always enjoy listening to TAL with my husband in the car. Every episode is informative and entertaining (also love the archive on their website). One of the highlights of our week.
Listening to Ira is like scratching a hard to reach itch. He’s a great narrator/journalist.

Having the archive on Apple podcasts would be a huge improvement

Love This American Life. It would be great if the archive was available on Apple podcast app, not just the lastest couple of episodes. Going to the website on your phone and scrolling back in time is clumpy and not very phone use/user friendly
