Join host Ira Glass and his company, as they bring a different theme to life each week, in the format of the popular Chicago radio show by the same name. In Reality check, we hear the stories of three people who hatched plans to make their dreams come true, only to be brought back to reality by unpleasant outcomes. Growth spurt introduces the viewer to three people who simply will themselves to the next stage of their lives, with mixed results. The Camera man introduces us to a young filmmaker who sets out to expose his alcoholic step-father, but instead creates a portrait of a flawed family; and animator Christopher Ward creates a piece about the perils of watching life explode from the safe distance of a camera lens. God's close up reveals stories where the faithful and not-so-faithful cross paths, trying to closer to God through pictures. My way explores the cost of stubbornness among four subjects.

Join host Ira Glass and his company, as they bring a different theme to life each week, in the format of the popular Chicago radio show by the same name. In Escape, teenage boys in Philadelphia impress girls using a mode of transportation obsolete in their neighborhood since the 19th century, and a young man's fight for independence from his mother is complicated by some very specialized circumstances. In Two wars, we learn about two foreigners in the U.S.: one is an Iraqi refugee, traveling the U.S. to let Americans ask him anything they want, and an immigrant from Bulgaria, who realizes that an ongoing argument with his American wife about lawn maintenance has to do with the life he left behind the Iron Curtain twenty years before. Going down in history tells the stories of people trying to make and remake history, including Wisconsin convicts attempting a prison break using dental floss, high school students whose yearbook photos show nothing of the drama in their lives, and a man with a decades-long obsession with one particular bird, who reveals the footage that may prove he's actually seen it. Underdogs features the world of boxing, way down the "food chain" from championship fights, and a group of New York kids who fight bullies by being funny. Scenes from a marriage profiles cartoonist Chris Ward's illustrations showing that every marriage, even a happy one, is a courtroom, and the disintegration of another couple's marriage is chronicled, as the husband's obsession with a legal forces them to face some tough questions. John Smith is the story of one life, told through the eyes of people all over the country who share the name John Smith

Als Chris Wilcha net is afgestudeerd krijgt hij de baan van zijn leven aangeboden: hij gaat de marketingafdeling van ColumbiaHouse, het grootste CD verzendhuis van Amerika, versterken. Men wil op dat moment aansluiten bij de nieuwe trend van gitaarbands als Nirvana en meent dat Wilcha daar alles van weet. Min of meer als grap neemt hij zijn camcorder mee en filmt zichzelf en zijn collegas̕. Omdat niemand er bezwaar tegen blijkt te hebben, blijft hij twee jaar lang dagelijks filmen. Zo is een kijkje in de keuken ontstaan van een typisch Amerikaans bedrijf
