An Evening with Ira Glass

Reinventing_the_radio_Ira_Glass

Tickets no longer available through WMFE

DATE: Saturday, June 20, 2015

TIME: 8 p.m.

LOCATION: Dr. Phillips Center for the Performing Arts

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 their show, how he and his staff are trying to push broadcast journalism to do things it doesn’t usually do. As part of this, Glass mixes stories from the show, live onstage, combining his narration with pre-taped quotes and music, recreating the sound of the show as the audience watches. And he plays funny and memorable moments from the show, and talks about what was behind their creation.
