"Our Friend David" - This week on This American Life

Aug 11, 2017

Favorite stories by our longtime contributor and friend David Rakoff.   

David Rakoff

David Rakoff died on August 9, 2012. He’d appeared on This American Life 25 times, first in 1996, during the third month of the show; his last appearance was just a few weeks before he died. He was on the program so often that in putting together this week’s show, we realized we could tell a lot of his life story, simply through things he said on the show. So this week we do just that, with excerpts from some of his favorite stories over the years.

This American Life airs Friday nights at 7:00 pm and repeats Saturday mornings at 9:00 am on KRCB-FM Radio 91!
