WBFO presents a riveting look into This American Life, the public radio show that continues to push the boundaries of broadcast journalism. For one night only, join Ira Glass -- radio pioneer, host, and creator of This American Life -- as he recreates the sound of the show right in front of the audience by mixing live onstage stories with pre-taped quotes and music, while also featuring a "best of" segment from the series' funniest moments. His quirky, unassuming and impossible not-to-like persona translates to the stage as well as through radio waves. Glass' editorial direction has lead This American Life to receive several Peabody and DuPont-Columbia awards. You will not want to miss this evening full of humor and insight put on by one of America's most renowned radio hosts.
