Ira Glass On The Future Of Radio

(AP Photo/Showtime, Monty Brinton)

With NPR’s popular Car Talk hosts retiring, public radio approaches a crossroads. Which way to go? Hit the archives to keep popular programs on the air, or create more new shows? The creator and host of This American Life has some ideas. We talk with Ira Glass about the present and future of public radio.

Plus, we listen back to two favorite conversations from earlier this year with naturalist E.O. Wilson and comedian Lewis Black, and get a weekend weather forecast from Nick Bond.
