This American Life

When I first got Netflix, I was so in love with it that I told everyone. I was a walking billboard for the movie by mail method. I liked the ability to rate movies and find recommendations based off of what you have enjoyed in the past. This week I received one of these recommendations and have fallen in love again.
I just watched This American Life: Season One and want to tell everyone about it. I had my hesitations, I went through the episode topics and thought, “Jesus? Pig Farms? You’ve got to be joking!” It all sounded a little too political to sit down and watch for entertainment value. I was wrong.
The approach was casual and told a story rather then a news report. It was personal but not pushy and touched on topics in a way that made you think and appreciate the different or misunderstood. It was sad and uplifting and addicting.
This American Life is also available via radio and podcast.
