Masters and Their Crafts >> Ira Glass

Do you get giddy when you hear the mid-week teasers from Ira on NPR in his endearingly nasal little voice?  "This week.... on This American Life..."?

The video quality isn't great, but the content is.  I'm always in awe of what a great storyteller Glass is on the show, adding suspense to even seemingly mundane topics, so I loved hearing insight on his method.  Hint: he says to throw out the rules you learned in school.

The ability to tell a story well is a really incredible life skill and one that I admire greatly, because despite whether it is part of your job, it is a major boost to your conversational repertoire and is sure to make you more interesting at dinner parties!
