Ira Glass is the host and creator of This American Life, the award-winning public radio program that draws almost 2 million listeners per week. Like his radio show, Glass is known for his shrewd journalism, compassionate insight, and wry humor. At DCA, Glass will speak about This American Life and how it’s put together: what makes a compelling story, how he and his staff find stories for the show, and the show’s journalistic goals. Glass will combine his own narration with pre-taped quotes and music, recreating the sound of This American Life and offering his audience a behind-the-scenes look at one of America’s favorite radio programs.
