Editors' Review

This American Life lets you listen to episodes from the popular public radio show going all the way back to the show's launch in 1995. The first screen lets you select from the radio show archive; TV shows shown originally on Showtime; a favorites section so you can save ones you like; or you can listen to episodes based on popular contributors. The app also has buttons across the bottom to find the latest shows (new shows are automatically downloaded to the app), a listing of all shows, a section for live streams, and a link to the blog. Basically, if you're a fan of This American Life, this app has everything you could want.

More than just a public-radio listening app, This American Life gives you numerous features to help you explore the archive of episodes along with detailed descriptions of each episode to make it easy to pick ones you want to listen to. One word of warning: there have been reports of crashes on this app, but they are working to iron out the bugs. I had a couple of crashes initially, but after rebooting my iPhone I have had no problems listening to shows or navigating the various features. Let us know in the comments if you have problems with this app. Overall, if you're a fan of This American Life, or enjoy well produced stories and interviews from people across the US, this app is an excellent choice.
