From 2006-2008, they produced an Emmy winning television version of This American Life on the Showtime network, which is now re-airing on Current TV.
Thet're also the co-producers, with NPR News, of the economics podcast and blog Planet Money.
There’s a theme to each episode, and a variety of stories on that theme. It’s mostly true stories of everyday people, though not always.
There’s lots more to the show, but it’s sort of hard to describe. Probably the best way to understand the show is to start at our favorites page, though we do have longer guides to our radio show and our TV show.
If you want to dive into the hundreds of episodes we’ve done over the years, there’s an archive of all our old radio shows and listings for all our TV episodes, too.
There are several ways to get the show:
