LOS ANGELES, Calif. - Each week, some 1.7 million listeners tune-in to This American Life, an insightful, innovative radio program that broadcasts touching true-life stories that unfold like audio movies to listeners on over 500 public radio stations nationally. This fall, listeners can own a selection of the greatest stories from the show on a two-CD compilation, This American Life: Stories Of Hope & Fear, available November 7th from Shout! Factory. Host Ira Glass and the staff of This American Life selected some of their favorite segments from the PeabodyÃ‚Â® Award-winning series, organized along the title theme which, Glass admits, "Not only summarizes the theme of nearly every story on our program, but all human drama and literature besides." Featuring segments by bestselling writer and humorist
David Sedaris (Naked), Comedy Central's "Daily Show" correspondent John Hodgman, and many others, this eclectic anthology addresses topics ranging from gender reassignment to karaoke comedy, with over two hours of alternately hilarious and heart-breaking spoken performances set against the music of Thurston Moore, Blonde Redhead, RZA, Calexico, Philip Glass, Morcheeba, Mogwai, Tom ZÃƒÂ©, Tortoise, Carly Simon and others. The third installment in the This American Life CD series, the two-disc This American Life: Stories Of Hope & Fear set, includes 11 complete stories from the Chicago Public Radio series, with an album insert featuring original artwork by Divya Srinivasan (Sufjan Stevens' Illinois) and liner notes by Ira Glass, for the suggested list price of $19.98.
