This American Life

Sunday, 11:00am to 12:00noon
  • Hosted by Ira Glass

This American Life is a weekly public radio show airing each Sunday morning on KZYX. There's a theme to each episode, and a variety of stories on that theme. Most of the stories are journalism, with an occasional comedy routine or essay. There's lots more to the show, but it's sort of hard to describe. Probably the best way to understand the show is to start at our favorites page, though we do have longer guides to our radio show and our TV show. If you want to dive into the hundreds of episodes we've done over the years, there's an archive of all our old radio shows and listings for all our TV episodes, too.
