Awesome, and their greatest failure may be their best show

So, two critical comments: sometimes This American Life is too strong for my squeamish stomach. And they should stop making TV shows and stick to radio.
On the other hand 98% of the shows are thoughtful, funny, insightful and the show on manufacturing in China (which got a retraction for being a "story" rather than "reporting") did the impossible -- it made conditions in Chinese factories relevant, funny, riveting and critical. So it was art, not science. So was Uncle Tom's Cabin.
