Known by millions of radio and podcast listeners as the host of "This American Life," Ira Glass was one of the formative forces behind radio in the early 21st Century. Based on years of experience in public radio, Glass created a type of storytelling that was expertly aimed at his audience. Each story in the hour has a varying length and tone (although some hours are devoted to only one story). Some are fiction, some non-fiction, and each captures specific contradictions in life, funny and sad; sometimes, both at once.
