About the Event Ira Glass and Jad Abumrad, the hosts of iconic radio programs This American Life and Radiolab, come together to take you on a journey of insight, investigation, and humanity in a way that only they can. Join these public radio luminaries for their live onstage event – layered with cinematic video, audio clips, original music composition, and their unique voices – about being at helm of audio journalism and podcasting, unpacking the vital importance of conversation, when to scrap a story, and how daunting it can be to try something new.

Two of the most iconic national public radio hosts, Ira Glass and Jad Abumrad, appearing together in San Francisco for one night only.

About Ira Glass Ira is the host and creator of the public radio program This American Life. The show is heard each week by over 5 million listeners on public radio stations and podcasts.

Glass began his career as an intern at National Public Radio’s network headquarters in Washington, DC in 1978, when he was 19 years old. He put This American Life on the air in 1995. He also served as an editor for the groundbreaking podcasts Serial, S-Town and Nice White Parents.

Under Glass’s editorial direction, This American Life has won the highest honors for broadcasting and journalistic excellence, including seven Peabody awards and the first Pulitzer Prize ever awarded for audio journalism. In 2021 This American Life episode ‘The Giant Pool of Money’ was inducted into the Library of Congress’s National Recording Registry, the first podcast ever so honored.

“Mr. Glass is a journalist but also a storyteller who filters his interviews and impressions through a distinctive literary imagination, an eccentric intelligence, and a sympathetic heart.” (The New York Times)

About Jad Abumrad Jad is the creator and former host of Radiolab, a public radio program broadcast on nearly 600 stations across the nation and downloaded more than 12 million times a month as a podcast. Abumrad currently hosts Everything. Together. Radio on Apple Music Hits. Each episode offers a kaleidoscopic mix of up-tempo, electro, dance, funk, hip-hop, experimental noise, soul, and everything in between.

Abumrad employs his dual backgrounds as composer and journalist to create what’s been called “a new aesthetic” in broadcast journalism. He orchestrates dialogue, music, interviews and sounds into compelling documentaries that draw listeners into investigations of otherwise intimidating topics, such as the nature of numbers, the evolution of altruism, or the legal foundation for the war on terror. He’s won three George Foster Peabody Awards, and in 2011 Abumrad was honored as a MacArthur Fellow (also known as the Genius Grant).

“Jad Abumrad is a radio host and producer whose engaging audio explorations of scientific and philosophical questions captivate listeners and bring to broadcast journalism a distinctive new aesthetic.” (MacArthur Foundation)
