The Complete Ira Glass on Creative Work

Posted On January 23, 2009

I’ve been seeing these different segments of Ira Glass (host of the amazing This American Life) pop up on different blogs, talking about creative work. So I did some snooping and gathered the entire collection.

A few points are pretty common (keep working at what you do), others are very interesting (talk normally), but all are told by Ira Glass so they’re all captivating and explained really well. If you’re into any type of creative work you need to watch them all.
