AllMusic Review by

This American Life: Lies, Sissies & Fiascos is a two-CD set featuring highlights from the award-winning Public Radio International show hosted by Ira Glass. Documentary and fictional writing are featured on the weekly show, which centers on a new theme with each episode. Lies, Sissies & Fiascoes contains 11 of the best moments from the show's first two years on the air, and includes pieces by some of This American Life's regulars like David Sedaris and Dishwasher Pete, as well as a new song by They Might Be Giants. The CD set proves to be a unique document from a refreshingly different show.
