Reinventing Radio: An Evening with Ira Glass
Ira Glass of This American Life is coming to Kingston on May 21 and to Troy Savings Bank Music Hall on May 22 to do a solo talk titled Reinventing Radio.
The creator of the public radio show This American Life talks about his program and how it’s put together: what makes a compelling story, where they find the amazing stories for their show, how he and his staff are trying to push broadcast journalism to do things it doesn’t usually do. As part of this, Glass mixes stories from the show, live onstage, combining his narration with pre-taped quotes and music, recreating the sound of the show as the audience watches. And he plays funny and memorable moments from the show, and talks about what was behind their creation.
Tickets are currently available through the individual event pages. For more info, head to the This American Life website.
