This two-CD set (and third in the series) brings together some of the most memorable segments from the immensely popular radio program THIS AMERICAN LIFE. Selected by host Ira Glass and the staff of the show, STORIES OF HOPE AND FEAR features 11 complete spoken-word performances detailing true-life tales that are sad, comic, and deeply moving. Bestselling non-fiction author David Sedaris and THE DAILY SHOW's John Hodgman are among the better-known names, but each story is truly absorbing. Music from Phillip Glass, Tortoise, Tom Ze, RZA, Calexico, and others provides a unique sonic backdrop to the spoken recitations.
