This American Life

leave a comment »

As befits a gray-haired eminence, I have recently fallen in love with episodes of This American Life, which I now download and listen to constantly. Using a number of “Best Of” websites, I’ve had great results with Act V, Fiasco!, Seemed Like a Good Idea at the Time, and the two most recent shows on the economy (1, 2), with eight more episodes waiting on my iPod.

The best one I’ve listened to yet is naturally Superpowers, just wall-to-wall awesome with appearances from Chris Ware, John Hodgman, Zora, and Jonathan Morris from the Gone but Not Forgotten blog—and best of all it turned me on to this very early Chris Ware story once hosted on TAL’s website. If you’ve never heard one of the *really good* TAL episode, start here.
