The host and creator of the public radio program This American Life, Ira Glass shares lessons learned from his life and career in storytelling with Seven Things I Learned.

Under his editorial direction, This American Life has won the highest honors for broadcasting and journalistic excellence, including six Peabody Awards. Also one of the editors of the podcasts Serial and S-Town, Glass has championed the style of narrative journalism found in a new generation of podcasts and radio shows.
