Don’t miss this singular opportunity to see a master at work! Ira Glass is the creator, producer and host of This American Life, the iconic weekly public radio program with millions of listeners around the world. He returns to the Paramount stage for a brand new engagement. Using audio clips, music, and video, Ira Glass delivers a unique talk; sharing lessons from his life and career of producing well-paced thought-provoking stories. During his presentation, Ira Glass will mix stories live on stage, giving us an intimate glimpse into the creative process of one of America’s foremost storytellers.

Glass began his career as an intern at National Public Radio's network headquarters in Washington, DC in 1978, when he was 19 years old. Over the years, he worked on nearly every NPR network news program and held virtually every production job in NPR's Washington headquarters. He has been a tape cutter, newscast writer, desk assistant, editor, reporter and producer. He has filled in as host of Talk of the Nation and Weekend All Things Considered.

A television adaptation of This American Life ran on Showtime for two seasons and Glass has produced three feature films: Mike Birbiglia’s “Don’t Think Twice” and “Sleepwalk with Me,” and the Netflix movie “Come Sunday.”

Under Glass's editorial direction, This American Life has won the highest honors for broadcasting and journalistic excellence, including six Peabody awards. In 1999, the American Journalism Review declared that This American Life was “in the vanguard of a journalistic revolution” and since then, a generation of podcasts and radio shows have sprung up — Radiolab, Invisibilia, StartUp, Reply All, Love + Radio, Heavyweight — building on the style of narrative journalism championed by Glass and his staff.
