“A video put together by Chris Ware for our spring 2009 event “This American Life — Live!” — in which Ira Glass hosts an actual episode of the radio program, performed onstage by some of our favorite contributors. Dan Savage, Starlee Kine, and Mike Birbiglia told stories; David Rakoff and Dave Hill conducted a ‘special investigation. Plus, additional visuals by Arthur Jones, and a very special appearance by Joss Whedon, creator of Buffy the Vampire Slayer!
The song in this video is “Eugene” by Andrew Bird. Animation by John Kuramoto.”
