This American Life
This American Life, hosted by the iconic Ira Glass, has been produced and aired on public radio since 1995. A journalistic non-fiction show showcasing fascinating stories about everything from coincidences to car dealerships to summer camp, the show manages to find a way to make pretty much any topic engaging. That’s probably why it’s won both a Peabody and a Pulitzer award. Each episode is about an hour long and available as a free podcast in addition to airing on the radio.
