Awesome!

This is a journey into a different world. Every time. Usually in three acts, funny, smart, interesting, sad, satisfying, happy, emotional....it is everything! every episode is a treasure. Thank you for giving this to the world! Best storytelling ever!

Thanks, as always, to the program’s co-founders

This show makes you wanna get into podcasting, like, yesterday!

Wonderfully humane, warm, witty, sometimes sad, but always compassionate and empathic stories that bypass your eardrum and go straight into your heart.

This show will transport you and make you discover the power of storytelling through sound.

Excellent, funny, heart braking

I have been listened to This American life for nearly 10 year now and I love every bit of it, even though I am not American. Some episodes made me cry like "Unconditional love", other ones made me laugh out lout like "Rom Com" or "Fear of Sleep". Then, there are those special episodes which confront me with a world I had never known existed and moved me from deep within like "Tell me I'm Fat". Keep up the good work, guys! I am listening to every single show of your's.
