Built around the innovative personal vision of host Ira Glass, "This American Life" has pioneered a new kind of radio. The weekly program explores a theme - fiascos, conventions, frenemies - through a mix of documentaries, radio monologues, investigative stories and occasional fiction. Usually the program applies the tools of journalism to everyday life. But sometimes it tackles news stories, leading to some of its most distinctive and acclaimed show. The stories can be engaging, intimate, surprising, funny, disturbing and bittersweet. "This American Life" airs on Saturday at noon Central and Sundays at 6:00 p.m. Central. Glass makes a rare public appearance in South Dakota this Saturday at the Washington Pavilion in Sioux Falls and Glass Joined Dakota Midday to discuss his career in radio.
