This American Life: Hand It Over—Stories from Our First Year on the Air is the first compilation album featuring radio broadcasts from This American Life. The two-disc set contains stories about Scott Carrier doing a documentary on schizophrenics, Ira Glass interviewing his mother, Dan Savage's "My Life As a Self Hating Republican," and Julia Sweeney's discussion of her cancer. The set was an incentive during a public radio fund-drive.
