speaking of SERIAL, IRA GLASS is appearing live, touring, listing his favorite documentaries

Serial

It’s official: “Serial” is the hottest podcast in the history of the known universe, the most significant moment in audio since the “War of the Worlds” broadcast, and the most innovative development in communication arts since the smoke signal. In fact, it’s a breakthrough symbolizing the Great Podcast Renaissance of 2014. [Yahoo]

Like composer Nick Diamonds, This American Life‘s Ira Glass was involved with the most popular podcast of all time, Sarah Koenig’s Serial, which aired its final episode about Hae-Min Lee and Adnan Syed today (12/18). What did you think of the ending (which was slightly different than Funny or Die’s version)? I thought it ended okay, but will leave it at that. #nospoilers

Ira Glass (first cousin once removed of Philip) is of course the host of public radio’s popular This American Life of which Serial is a spinoff. When not speaking on the radio, Ira sometimes relaxes with a documentary. He listed some of his favorites for the Sundance Doc Club, including Stop Making Sense, and crime drama The Thin Blue Line.

Ira Glass also often appears live in front of audiences, and that continues to prove true throughout the next year, as you can see from his busy schedule outlined below. He appears at Town Hall in NYC this Friday (flyer below), and has upcoming talks at Yale, the Association of Performing Arts, Mayo Performing Arts Center, and many more places.

Dates and video instructions on how to listen to a podcast (by Ira Glass), below…
