Ira Glass combines documentary journalism with other kinds of storytelling: radio monologues, found tapes, short fiction and interviews. Sidestepping sensationalism, Ira and his staff serve up narrative epics that pinpoint, in the tradition of Studs Terkel, the unusual and poetic in the everyday. Show originates from WBEZ Chicago, Illinois Friday 7pm, with repeat broadcast Saturday 12pm.



This program will be available today at 9AM.
