Join veteran NPR producer Ira Glass as he pushes the envelope of radio performance with a show that’s part journalism, part arts, and entirely compelling and unique. Each week, This American Life chooses a theme. Glass does a story or two, and he invites a variety of writers and performers to take a whack at the theme, with stories, monologues, short radio plays, miniature documentaries, “found recordings” and original works for radio.
#554: Not It!
Stories of people, cities, and commonwealths touching their noses and proclaiming "not it!" Including the story of how one city used a rocking chair to take retribution against a late night TV show host, and an island that takes people it doesn't want to deal with and ships them away.
