About Us

We love hearing your comments on our shows. Comment emails are circulated among all the producers and taken very seriously. Email us here.

If you have a question and want a speedy answer:

  • Check our FAQ for general questions about the show, streaming audio, podcasting, submissions, and pretty much everything else.
  • If you're looking for a story or a segment, try different key words in our search engine. If that doesn't work, peruse our archives.
  • If you're wondering when and where you can listen to the show in your area, check our station locator.

If you strike out, drop a line to web@thislife.org: we try to reply to all questions that aren't answered on the website, with some exceptions.* It may take a bit, but we'll do our best.

If you have a story idea: Check out our submissions info page, and contact us at storypitch@thislife.org. We do not accept submissions by mail.

For general requests or requests for Ira Glass, contact Kimberly Henderson.

For press requests email press@thislife.org.

For sponsorship or business collaboration requests, contact Seth Lind.

If you want to adapt one of our radio stories into a movie or TV show, you can contact Elise Bergerson.

For questions on the status of orders placed in our online store, call (646) 213-9818 or email orders@thislife.org

Sadly, here are some things the webfolks CAN'T do:

  • We can't answer questions about scoring music used in the show.
  • And we can't answer questions about fellowships, fellowship applications, or application status. Look at our fellowship page for info.
