This American Life Episode 449: Middle School

This American Life podcast
October, 2011

This American Life is, by most measures, the most popular podcast in America. Host Ira Glass did an entire hour-long episode about middle school. Here’s the description from the website: “This week, at the suggestion of a 14-year-old listener, we bring you stories from the awkward, confusing, hormonally charged world of middle school. Including a teacher who transforms peer pressure into a force for good, and reports from the frontlines of the middle school dance.”
