Ira Glass on Storytelling

When a new episode of This American Life is made available, that is the first thing I listen to. There are a lot of great podcasts out there but if I had to choose only one, I think I would go for This American Life (sorry RadioLab, I love you). Recently I learned that the host and producer of the show, Ira Glass, can be found on YouTube talking about storytelling. He covers how he thinks you should tell a story for a radio/TV show. I recognize how the show executes that narrative but it also doesn't take anything away from the fact it's excellent and that there are a lot of hard work and talent put into it.
