Ira Glass in Richmond

March 22, 2015



Ira Glass has hosted This American Life for over 20 years. He built the form of the medium into what it is today. Speaking in the RVA tonight, on what audio does well:

“Radio is like a machine for empathy. We live in a world where we are so separate. But no one’s mind changes because of something they heard on the radio. What [radio] can do is make us see, “Oh, that’s what it would be like to be them.” That’s it. And I wish more things did that.”
