In this episode I take my first crash course in podcast listening, with This American Life (TAL for those in the know) as my subject, which was HUGELY exciting for me, since I’d heard so much about the podcast but had never listened to it. With the help of Gabs and Erin, our indomitable editors-in-chief, we discuss this wonderful podcast, and other tangential subjects.

So, the upshot of this episode is this: check out This American Life. It’s an intriguing, thoughtful, and thought-provoking listen, and there’s enough variety that anyone could find an episode that suits their personal tastes. I’d recommend the episodes I listened to, and any others that strike your fancy. And if you hear any episodes you think I should listen to, let me know!
