This Week’s Blog Post – Write about what you learned from Ira Glass.

Take in a slice of Americana with critically acclaimed host Ira Glass on “This American Life.” Each week he picks a theme, then gives his writers and performers the freedom to weave real stories from real people around that theme in a manner they find most engaging. You’ll meet fascinating people with stories that range from heart-warming to bizarre. Glass and company try interesting things and take radio where it’s never gone before. It’s a show that defies description, but has become one of public radio’s most celebrated programs. Produced by Chicago Public Radio.

Ira Glass of “This American Life” talks about the building blocks of a great story.
