Seven Things I've Learned: An Evening with Ira Glass

Ira Glass, the creator, producer and host of This American Life and one of the foremost storytellers of our time, pulls back the curtain on the creative process.

What inspires him to create? What drives his passion? How have failures and successes informed his decisions?

Using audio clips, music, and video, Glass shares lessons from his life and career in storytelling in an illuminating talk.

Glass launched weekly public radio program This American Life in 1995. It is now heard by 2.2 million people on more than 500 stations, and another 2.5 million people download the weekly podcast.

We live in a world where joy and empathy and pleasure are all around us, there for the noticing.
