Description

In November 1995, Ira Glass quietly launched the first episode of This American Life. The rest, as they say, is history. Today his show is a colossal success and Ira Glass is a household name. But in the intervening two decades, Ira has left an indelible mark on the industry by helping to shape hundreds of podcasts as well as hundreds of podcasters — including Alex. On this episode, Alex sits down with his mentor and former boss to talk about the early days at This American Life, what Ira taught Alex, and how being a good boss means learning to set people free.

`I liked this episode so much, and I'm so sorry that I didn't hear the 2 hours original episode. I was only listening to this episode but at the end when he mentioned that 2 hours thing I had to go and check on the duration of this episode and unfortunately it's only 50 minutes.
