For British people, America is an inherently strange place. It exists as a perfect dichotomy, feeling both deeply familiar and outrageously different, all at once. However, what alleviates that strangeness is the knowledge that there are threads of feelings and solidarity which connect us all. From timely episodes discussing the reverberations of a recent news event in a given community to throwback episodes that fully encapsulate the full range of human emotion, This American Life is a deeply comforting window into another cultural world. Host Ira Glass leads us through each weekly theme, charting how a feeling, phenomenon or thought has fundamentally shaped the lives of people across America, and beyond.

I love their take on society. Ira Glass is a great host, the production of their stories are flawless, and the topics are very well curated.

Is sometimes amazing, with really cool stories across America. Dinging it a bit as think it can be very hit and miss, and is one of the few podcasts I wish you could get rating by individual episode to prioritize which you listen to.
