TWO OF THE MOST ICONIC NATIONAL PUBLIC RADIO HOSTS APPEARING TOGETHER IN SAN FRANCISCO.

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.

A VIP ticket, priced at $125, includes a 45-minute pre-show hosted reception with Mr. Glass and Mr. Abumrad in attendance. VIP ticket holders will be required to wear a mask during the reception, when not eating or drinking.

"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

"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."
