This American Life , my new addiction, is a Radio Show that has a theme each week where stories are shared.
Some notable contributors are David Sedaris, Sarah Vowell, Russell Banks, Dave Eggers, John Hodgman (from Mac vs. PC commericals), Michael Chabon, Nick Hornby, Dan Savage and Haruki Murakami.
