Does anybody secretly aspire to speak with the casual intelligence and articulation of everybody on This American Life? It’s a personal goal of mine. So much so that I sometimes get distracted in real conversations because I’ll start thinking “Does this sound like a conversation that could be on This American Life?”
It’s kind of an silly obsession really. But next time you listen to the show, pay attention to how well-spoken the hosts and guests are. It’s uncanny.
