Segment A:  A Conversation with Ira Glass
It’s not a news show or a talk show or a call-in show. It’s not really formatted like other radio shows at all. Trying to explain what THIS AMERICAN LIFE is to the uninitiated can be a challenge. (Thankfully, there are very few NPR listeners unfamiliar with it!)
