This American Life on HPPR

Sundays from 3:00 to 4:00 pm CT and Fridays from 3:00 to 4 am CT
Ira Glass

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.

    Instead of the usual "each week we choose a theme, and bring you 3 or 4 stories on that theme" business, we throw all that away and bring you 20 stories—yes, 20—in 60 minutes.
