Default NPR/PRI's "This American Life" - nowhere on Sirius?

It's been a while since Sirius dumped the PRI channel and they claimed at the time that all the shows from PRI would be placed onto the NPR channels. I was just trying to schedule my Stiletto with content and according to Sirius.com, "This American Life" is not on Sirius at all.

Anybody know if the schedule is wrong? Do you know of a time slot it's on?

From www.thislife.org -

"Unfortunately, our show is no longer available on Sirius. This was their choice, not ours. If you'd like to register your displeasure, please visit this page."

AFAIK, This American Life has not been on Sirius since PRI was dropped. It is a PRI program, not an NPR program, although terrestrial stations that are NPR affiliates do carry it.

Never trust anything Sirius says or prints, especially about programming content. If you turn on your receiver and hear it, be thankful.

Sucked losing TAL. It's about the only thing I still listen to on terrestrial.
