Sleepwalk With Me is still in theaters, but if you're more inclined to watch movies at home, you’re in luck. The film is now available on VOD — video on demand — via most cable operators and satellite providers. You can watch the movie tonight!
Or you can wait 'til this Friday, October 12th, when we’re encouraging everyone to host a pizza party and watch the movie with friends (pizza figures prominently in several scenes in the movie). And here’s the deal: Ira Glass and Mike Birbiglia will be video chatting with as many of these parties as possible. So plan your party now, and email us to let us know how they can video chat with you.
Email email@example.com with the following info:
* City, State
* Skype handle or Google Chat account
* Start and end time of your party (include time zone)
* Phone number (as backup, in case we have tech issues with the video chat)
* Mike and Ira are going to call as many parties as possible. In 100 words or less, tell us why your party should be at the top of the list.
See you next Friday!
PS: If you're one of the first 50 people to email us a photo of your party, we’ll send you a signed poster from the film.
Introducing the first spinoff show from the creators of This American Life:
Ira Glass writes:
Hello everyone! The second series from This American Life is now officially not a dream but a thing that exists in the world. We have a spinoff! In fact, there are already four episodes, ready for you to hear.
To reiterate the facts in case you’ve missed them till now: The new show is called Serial and it’s hosted by Sarah Koenig, who’s done some of the most memorable stories ever on our show.
What’s different about Serial is that it’s a story that takes a dozen episodes to tell. So each new episode brings you the next chapter of this amazing, unfolding story. Serial’s a podcast, not a radio show, because a podcast seems like a better place for a long story that you need to hear from the beginning. With podcasts, you can download everything and binge listen. Not sure how to get a podcast? We've prepared simple instructions.
We’re all super-excited to finally be premiering our new show. It’s been in the works for a year. Sarah is just fantastic in this new role. We truly and sincerely hope you like it.
