(Summary adapted from official website)
This American Life is a weekly public radio show produced by Chicago Public Media and distributed by Public Radio Exchange. This American Life also the co-producers, with NPR News, of the economics podcast and blog Planet Money. And a half dozen stories from the radio show are being developed into films.
The radio show and TV show follow the same format. There’s a theme to each episode, and a variety of stories on that theme. It’s mostly true stories of everyday people, though not always. There’s lots more to the show, but it’s sort of hard to describe.
