Ira Glass of This American Life is coming to Utah this week, which gave us the opportunity to talk to him. Ira has said that "joy and empathy and pleasure are all around us, there for the noticing." And that's what his popular program is all about – taking the time to notice the stories around us. Monday, we're broadcasting Doug and Ira's conversation about his career, making news headlines personal and the philosophy that recently earned This American Life a Peabody award.
On Saturday, April 12, Ira Glass will perform an evening of storytelling at Kingsbury Hall in Salt Lake City. It's called Reinventing Radio, and it's a behind the scenes look at the creation of This American Life. Tickets are available by calling 801-581-7100 or on-line at kingsburyhall.utah.edu
