ira glass is the man

By Tim Wu on July 16, 2007 in Blog

i’m gonna be an embedding whore now.

here are several videos of Ira Glass, the host of This American Life (guy that was 2nd on my list of fucking awesome voices), giving some guidelines to good storytelling.

i think it’s vital stuff for anyone with an interest in writing for film or television, which i don’t… so i’ve seen this a thousand times and still suck at storytelling. i just watch it to listen to him talk.

so there you go. now noone has an excuse to suck at storytelling.
… except for me.
