I listen to National Public Radio. A lot. In fact, I’m not sure whether my car radio gets other stations. So, when I heard that the program called This American Life was going to do a live show, I signed up quickly. It was actually a live video broadcast of a live show, if you can wrap your head around that: live video> live show> video…radio?
Anyway, one of the funniest segments was a 6 minute film by Mike Birbiglia featuring one of the great radio hosts and interviewers of today, Terry Gross from WHYY in Philadelphia. The video, which I have linked here, pushes back the curtain on the NPR world to see some of the dirty laundry.
