A lot of people around here love This American Life, I think. I don't listen to it though as my interest in that subject material, as I understand it, is minimal.
What subject matter? American life? I'm not sure the show has a "subject matter".
Yeah, that's basically what I clicked in to write. TAL has a really extensive subject range. Science to literature to pop music to childhood stories to love to funerals to caring for parents to David Sedaris... There's a lot to enjoy, and I almost always like every segment.
I noticed that that list also included The Moth
, and I really have to recommend that show, if anyone here hasn't heard it yet. Most of their podcasts are under 15 minutes, so it does't take much of a commitment.
