This American Life

Fridays, 7-8 p.m.; Saturdays, 2-3 p.m. on KUAR
Ira Glass

There's a theme to each episode, and a variety of stories on that theme. It's mostly true stories of everyday people, though not always. There's lots more to the show, but it's sort of hard to describe. You should listen.
