February 11
Zellerbach Hall


For more than 25 years, public radio fans in the US have traveled the airwaves guided by the instantly recognizable voice and keen journalistic mind of Ira Glass. As host and creator of the beloved public radio program This American Life, Glass has pioneered a highly influential style of documentary storytelling, exploring topics intimate and international in scope—from humorous personal history to true crime, to pressing domestic issues like immigration, gun violence, and the economy. This American Life is the first program ever awarded a Pulitzer Prize for audio journalism, and is heard each week by more than 5 million listeners. In his thoroughly entertaining talks, Glass shares new stories along with reflections, anecdotes, and revelations from his fascinating decades-long career as an interviewer, producer, and broadcaster.
