Reinventing Radio

Go behind-the-scenes with This American Life when public radio personality Ira Glass visits the Kauffman Center on October 24. Part presentation, part performance, “An Evening with Ira Glass” will take an in-depth look at the popular public radio show, from how its creators find the stories they share to how the show fits into—and pushes the boundaries of—narrative journalism and storytelling. Fans of the show will also delight in the “performance” aspects, with Glass mixing stories on-stage, combining narration with pre-recordings to make the audience feel like they’re watching a live, one-man version of This American Life.
