I just love this podcast. PJ and Alex and the rest of the crew are amazing at this style of longform radio/podcasting. If you were ever worried that the This American Life idiom would fare worse in the hands of the next generation, this pod will reassure you that it is in excellent hands.

Best Podcast Out There

Usually story podcasts seem useless and a waste of time. But every episode of Reply All is not just an investigation into technology and the internet, but into how humans connect, grow, love and abuse. It has amazing journalism where they travel and even place themselves in danger to get the full story. If you’ve never listened. I highly recommend. (Oh and it’s funny too!)

Craigslist is the internet’s classifieds section, but it’s also one of its more shadowy corners, where the ads are anonymous and ephemeral. So we found ourselves wondering - what would we find if we replied to a couple?

He died last month, but the legacy of his website lives on. We talked to Jennifer Boulanger, a woman who works at a number of abortion clinics, and whose name ended up on Horsley's website in the 90's.Reporter Bianca Giaever is a filmmaker and radio producer in New York.http://www.biancagiaever.com/SponsorsHighfive (http://www.highfive.com/reply)Outlook for mobile devices (download for free for iOS or Android)Mailchimp (http://www.mailchimp.com/replyall)
