Well, let's not spend too much time bashing TAL.  I agree, there's a hipper-than-thou condescending vibe that comes thru from some of the contributors, but there is also some good stuff, even occasionally some REAL GOOD stuff like the audio journal of the kid from Afghanistan. 
My own personal bias is that I really dislike any of the segments actually narrated or told by Mr. Glass, his idea of what might be interesting to the world at large shows more self fascination than I can tolerate.
I also agree that there is an "NPR blandness imprint" to TAL to a degree, and the show doesn't push categorical boundaries like Joe Frank's shows have, and so on. TAL is a story anthology, a decent one, told from the point of the post-modern hipeoisie and isn't an experiment in nonobjective radio the way Joe's work often is.
So, maybe let's leave discussion and / or bashing of TAL for other fora and get back to Joe....
