An outstanding radio episode

This American Life is brilliant.

Seriously, you could probably pick any of the series's episodes at random and find yourself with an hour of outstanding entertainment.

But I particularly want to endorse Superpowers 2013. The four acts are perfect from tip to tale.
  • Act one - John Hodgman uses your choice of which superpower to choose in a magical world as exploration of who you are as a person.
  • Act two - A woman aims to be a CIA agent and then realizes that she isn't a superhero.
  • Act three - Who knew there was a website of Gone and Forgotten superheroes?
  • Act four - Superman gets his butt kicked but in the most morally debilitating way.
Listen to it...listen right now...
