Public radio program This American Life has spent the last 20 years broadcasting its eclectic mix of assorted – and often experimental – journalistic essays and stories. Fusing both emotional and hilarious moments, the show is a self-described “public radio show for people who don’t necessarily care for public radio.”

Now, the creator and host of the critically acclaimed program, Ira Glass, offers an exclusive inside-look at his hugely popular program, and how it’s put together. True to form, Ira blends education and entertainment as he relates what makes a compelling story, where he and the producers find these amazing stories, and how he and his staff are trying to push broadcast journalism to do things it doesn’t usually do.

The award-winning radio personality is positively delightful as he shares behind-the-scenes tales of the funniest and most memorable moments from the show, combining his narration with pre-taped quotes and music to recreate the sound of the radio show live for the audience.
