STORYTELLER. PRODUCER. ICON.
Ira Glass takes you on an audio-visual journey. In this singular performance, Glass shares the things he’s learned during his nearly four decades in broadcasting and storytelling. With subject matter that is pulled from his personal motivations, passions, failures, and successes, Glass’ performance dives into what it takes and what it means to be a storyteller.
Glass began his career as an intern at National Public Radio’s network headquarters in Washington, D.C. in 1978, when he was 19 years old. Over the years, he has worked on nearly every NPR network news program and held virtually every production job in NPR’s headquarters.
Under Glass’ editorial direction, This American Life has won the highest honors for broadcasting and journalistic excellence, including six Peabody Awards. In 1999, the American Journalism Review declared This American Life was “in the vanguard of a journalistic revolution” and since then, a generation of podcasts and radio shows have sprung up — Radiolab, Invisibilia, StartUp, Reply All, Love + Radio, Heavyweight — building on the style of narrative journalism championed by Glass and his staff.
