This (Specific) American Life

Last month, the always-great public radio show This American Life did a live show, simulcast to a bunch of movie theatres around the country. I was gonna go, but my current American Life doesn't support a $20 on-a-whim movie theatre ticket, so I skipped it.

Thankfully, they broadcast the show as their regular radio hour last weekend. It's all great, but the song by Joss Whedon and the subsequent bit by Dan Savage (who hosts a great podcast of his own) are must-listens.

As a bonus, here's an animated short by Chris Ware (music by the also always-great Andrew Bird) that was part of the visually-enhanced original program.
