I live in California and I am sorry that I don't get "This American Life" because it sounds very interesting.

It's on in California, too. It's on just about everywhere.

Look here for a station and time in your area.

The show basically picks a topic then offers three(usually) very honest, yet diverse, and real stories or segments on the topic of the day. It is always amazing how some of the most obscure things can stir interest and passion.

I downloaded the first podcast yesterday and we listened to it on the ride home last night. The first act had us laughing so hard I thought I was going to have to pull the car over. The next two acts were OK, but not as great as a lot of the others I have heard. Anyway, I am just so excited that I can now catch this show every week.

You would love it sush. Each week is something different. This past week the topic was Recordings made for people in which only one person was supposed to hear the recording.

The first act was about an answering machine message that a mom left her son at Columbia. It was hillarious. The message was forwarded to just about every student there at the time. It was something that anyone who was a student there at the time would know about, remember, and probably laugh as soon as you mentioned it.

The second act was about a soldier in the Gulf war who carried a tape recorder with him into each battle. He would turn it on anytime he feared that there might be the possibility that he could be killed. The tapes were for his wife so that she would have some closure in case the worst happened. She would not have to wonder what happened.

The third act was about a man who went to Italy on vacation. He met a woman who he fell in love with and they spent the entire time he was there together. When he got back to the states he would send her letters on tape. They are now married and living in Italy.

You can check out the website here and download the shows onto your computer if you want.

Each week is something completely different, but it is usually riveting.
