This American Life on HPPR
This American Life is a weekly show that belongs in no other format but its own. It is a collection of stories centered around a theme, some tales sidesplitting and some sad, but all interesting or surprising. Ira Glass hosts the show and weaves together the stories into several acts.
Sunday, March 9, 2014 4:00pmLast May, a weird story made the news: the FBI killed a guy in Florida who was loosely linked to the Boston Marathon bombings. He was shot seven times in his living room by a federal agent. What really happened? Why was the FBI even in that room with him? A reporter spent six months looking into it, and she found that the FBI was doing a bunch of things that never made the news. Her Boston Magazine story.
