This American Life

Friday 7:00 - 8:00pm, Saturday 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm


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.

We asked listeners to send us their best coincidence stories, and we got more than 1,300 submissions! There were so many good ones we decided to make a whole show about them. From a chance encounter at a bus station to a romantic dollar bill to a baffling apparition in a college shower stall. See more of your coincidence stories — with photos — here.
