This American Life Episodes

Over the course of the next five weeks, we’ll be listening to at least eight episodes of the radio show, This American Life. Each week, we’ll choose at least two to listen to and respond to together. We’ll talk at the beginning of the class about how to go about choosing the episodes, collectively.

Below is the list of episodes contained on the TAL USB drive that you can buy from the UMW bookstore. We’ll be choosing from this list.

You can actually listen to any TAL episode for free by streaming it from the show Web site, but if you want to be able to listen to it without being tethered to your computer (and an internet connectin), you’ll want to buy the USB drive.
