Journalism nerds, FREAK OUT! The man himself, Mr. Ira Glass, bespectacled creator of This American Life and intellectual hero, is coming to Massey Hall. Glass will deconstruct his popular public radio show, talk about what makes a compelling story, and how to push broadcast journalism beyond its expected limitations.
On October 27th, Glass will be mixing stories from the show live onstage, integrating pre-taped quotes, music, and narration. He’ll play memorable moments, and talk about what was behind their creation. Yes, this is the coolest thing ever.
