This American Life
This American Life describes contemporary life with themed episodes and a variety of stories on that theme — mostly true stories of everyday people, though not always. The stories presented are engaging, intimate, surprising, funny, disturbing and bittersweet.
Stories of meddling, snooping, and just getting way, way up in other
people's business. A cellphone hidden in a bag of chips starts a messy turf war between the FBI
and a local sheriff; and a surprising handbook lets us peek into the secret world of professional
cheerleading. Plus: Studs Terkel.
