Tonight on This American Life TV: "John Smith"

Mar 25, 2011

On Monday March 28th at 10/9c, Current TV will air "John Smith," the sixth episode of our second season of television. It's as good as anything we've ever put on the radio. If you watch only one episode, this is the one to check out. It follows seven people, all named John Smith, from a baby to a man in a nursing home - telling the story of a life cycle through several individual lives. It's our only hour-long episode, was a marathon of filming and editing, and ended up winning an Emmy for our editor Joe Beshenkovsky. Here's a clip:
