This American Life on WUTC

Sundays, 7pm - 8pm
  • Hosted by Ira Glass

This is a quirky, edgy radio magazine of investigations, both serious and funny, of the American condition. Each week, This American Life explores a theme--through a mix of radio monologues, mini-documentaries, found tape and unusual music.
