This American Life

Home Movies

Today at 12:00pm
Repeats at 9:00pm

Today at 3:00pm
Repeats at 1:00am

Handwriting: Is it an essential part of who we are and how we think — or a technology that served its purpose until something better came along? Plus, hear about a famous economics essay written in the voice of a pencil.
