312: How We Talked Back Then

312: How We Talked Back Then

May 12, 2006
In this show we return to two radio programs originally broadcast in 1996 and 1997. In one show, listeners came onstage with their letters, which they read aloud. In another, listeners from around the country talked about all the brand new sorts of experiences they were having with this new technology that had entered everyone's lives, the Internet. Each show, in its way, is a kind of time capsule.
  • Ira talks about two live shows that This American Life put on in the early days, both co-hosted by David Hauptschein. One was about letters, and the other was about this then-new phenomenon called the internet.
