This American Life Goes Hollywood (or Something Like That)





This American Life, a slightly quirky but always compelling radio show, has developed a large and fiercely dedicated audience since it first aired in 1995. And nowadays, the program, hosted by Ira Glass, is one of the most popular podcasts on iTunes. (It currently ranks #2 on the most popular podcast list: iTunes  Feed  Web Site.) On March 22, This American Life will take the next step in its evolution when Showtime airs a televised version of the program. If you’re a fan who is wondering what the show might look like on TV — how they might translate the feel of the show to a visual medium — below you can find a couple of trailers that will give you a quick taste:

  • I must be the only person who thinks that every single episode of TAL is depressing and sad… it’s all about squashed dreams, coping with family members, and mourning. I can’t bear to listen to the radio show anymore, so no chance am I going to bother watching it on a screen.
