This American Life

The radio show is also a Showtime show. I’ve yet to see the television show, since, um, I don’t have Showtime. However, people rave about it and hopefully I’ll be able to pick it up on DVD. After watching this animated short from Season Two (it premiered on May 4 and the second episode was last night) I really want to see this show. I love how this video illustrates the hazy notion of memory and storytelling and why both are so essential to the human DNA.

    Do you have Netflix? It’s one of the TV shows available in the Watch Now category. I spent a couple of lunch breaks taking in an episode or two, but right now I’m watching 30 Rock and Arrested Development on Hulu. I’ll get back to it eventually.
