This American Life Host
The creator of the public radio show This American Life talks about his program and how it's put together: what makes a compelling story, where they find the amazing stories for the show, how he and his staff are trying to push broadcast journalism to do things it doesn't usually do.
Ira Glass began his career in radio aged just 19 years as an intern for the NPR. This American Life came on air in 1995, and has run ever since with Glass at the helm as the show's host and executive producer. Aired weekly, this award-winning show covers a different theme each week though the stories and accounts it tells are usually of a personal nature and about the 'everyday American.'
