Ira Glass is coming May 1 to a movie theater near you. Sort of. He’s actually coming to a theater near you via satellite from a theater near him in New York. But it’s live, people, the scripted pauses, the predictable story arcs, perhaps even the grating delivery of Sarah Vowell—it’ll all be in real time. I’m more of a Radio Lab fan myself, but never say I didn’t do anything for all you TAL junkies out there. For a mere $20, watch His Glassness debut “never-before-seen extraordinary, funny, and true stories from everyday life, show outtakes, and answer audience questions.” In HD. H-fucking-D!!
