As I mentioned before, I’ve been listening to a lot of This American Life.  In reverse chronological order.  I just got through 2008, and started on 2007 the other day.

But here’s the really funny thing-  there are definite recurring themes.  and they are not what you’d expect, for the most part.

Through my opinionated personal perception (meaning, I haven’t actually counted) the most common recurring themes from 2011-2008 are:

1. economics

2. police corruption/incompetency (sometimes paired with court injustice)

3. chimps (like, the monkeys)

maybe I will count someday- create a set of links to all the episodes about police corruption, about chimps, etc.  I’m sure somebody else has already identified economics as a pervasive theme.
