Based on the radio program of the same name, This American life is a journalistic, non-fiction reality show, which examines the lives of Americans in anthological episodes rooted in a different theme for each subsequent episode. Host Ira Glass interviews these people, peeling back the layers of their individual situations, reflective of the theme involved. These themes are explored in each episode through several acts, maybe more, maybe less, depending on the nature of the theme and the people whose lives fit into it. This is the story of the contemporary American, examined under many different lenses of the same microscope.
