Very human stories that are compelling

Long time listener, first time....reviewer. If you are looking for unique revealing insights into the human experience that really add meaning and perspective to your life, you have hit pay dirt.
As you hurl yourself along the journey of growing up, then old, then older, you will find stories from This American Life are bright spots between the clouds that illuminate parts unknown in ways that tease out curiosity, empathy, and deep connection with a(much larger and ever more diverse) community.... adding richness one’s own narrative enough to (in a moment of true passion) abandon proper grammar and punctuation in a review that is more or less a Trojan horse secretly legitimatizing ‘run-on’ sentences as real human communication.... but I forget myself. This podcast grows deeper people, and it’s unique sense of adventure is a rabbit hole in which you want to descend.
