This American Life
I just started watching Showtime's TV version of This American Life, and I really love it. They hooked me in by promising animation by Chris Ware, one of the best comic book authors out there, and now I can't stop watching. I haven't heard much of the radio show, though I have tuned across it in the car occasionally - I do remember hearing a story by Richard Bausch that was really interesting, though I never caught the end until I went back and looked it up later. They're really good at making little things interesting, and what gets me is that even though they have a sense of humor about the stories they do, they approach them all with a real sense of compassion.
