This American Life now airing in Australia!

Feb 1, 2011

We're pleased to announce that as of this past Sunday, January 30th, This American Life will be broadcast weekly across Australia on ABC Radio National. ABC will air a combination of new episodes and classic episodes from the archives, 7PM each Sunday.

“Australia seems to have a more adventurous breed of documentary radio producer than we have here in the states. Or at least that's the impression I always get when I hear their work. My hope is that what we're doing - in trying to reinvent what it means to be public broadcasters - will be relevant and fun to listen to in Australia. We all have similar missions. The national borders that separate us seem like an artificial construct. We’re thrilled to join the great lineup of shows on ABC."
