We completed Season 8 of “This is Your Life” on September 26, 2016. The podcast is currently on hiatus while we design a new and improved show. We’ll be airing some fan favorites in the meantime and will debut the new format in the new year. So stay tuned! In the meantime, enjoy some of our popular episodes from the past 8 seasons below.

I would also suggest that you use a podcast application on your iPhone or Android phone. I use Downcast. Another popular one is Instacast. Both are the same price.

These applications make discovering, subscribing, and listening to podcasts so much easier. The biggest advantage is that you don’t have to load iTunes on your computer, subscribe, and then manually sync to your phone. You can do the whole thing from within Downcast. They also automatically update your podcasts every time a new episode is released.
