This American Life

Recommended Posts

Anybody else out there listening to this show? I'm pretty religious about it. This week's theme was "Cat and Mouse." They covered a bit about highschool pranksters and principals, The "Minutemen" volunteers watching the mexican/american boarder and guys fucking with them, and some dude who just couldn't find the right couch (which admittedly wasn't that interesting).

 

Then they finished on a story about the NYC vandal squad staring Earsnot that was too funny not to share: http://www.thisamericanlife.org/radio-archives/episode/309/cat-and-mouse?act=4

That graffiti part is old. They added it in probably because it fit the topic..

And James Springs story was fucking awesome

I love THIS AMERICAN LIFE. The episode on Cicero, IL was awesome. For anyone not from CHICAGO, it's a perfect example of how fucked up police/government is, and works, in my town. Coruption is king.

public radio F T W

 

Don't listen to this show as much I'd like to.

I always hear the previews for it but I'm too lazy to tune in that late.

I hate their stupid condescending voices.

i hate the fact that they are young Americans trying to sound intellectual.

If it is intellectual and interesting, then it doesn't need to be dressed up with put on voices and snazzy editing, we are adults here and that is some bullshit.

I guess I have just grown up listening to BBC Radio 4 and I am spoilt but fuck it.
