This American Life
I think that I’m happy to learn that This American Life is going to be on television. Then, on the other hand, maybe I’m not. Maybe listening to the program stretches my imagination–and that’s a good thing; and maybe watching it on television will stifle my imagination. I’ll keep listening, certainly. Maybe I’ll watch on an ongoing basis… I’ll give it a try, anyway. It starts tonight on Showtime. Maybe that in itself is wrong: for a public radio program to transition to a premium cable-and-satellite network. I’ll let you know what I think after I watch it.
