A conversation with Ira Glass: Behind the scenes at This American Life

Nov 10, 2011

Listen to the story

Next week the host and creator of the public radio program This American Life will be in Laramie and will give a talk called Re-inventing Radio: An evening with Ira Glass.  Glass began his career with NPR as an intern in 1978 and later became a fixture on the network before debuting This American Life on Chicago’s public radio station WBEZ.  He’s noted for being an outstanding story teller, but he says that never came easy for him, and Glass says he spent a lot of time honing his craft.
