Spend an intimate evening with the creator of the public radio show This American Life, Ira Glass, as he discusses what makes a compelling story, where amazing stories are found, and how he and his staff are trying to push broadcast journalism to do things it doesn’t usually do. Glass mixes his live commentary with sound bites from his radio shows and pre-recorded music. This American Life is heard on more than 500 stations each week by over 1.8 million listeners.
