Journalism In Musical Clothing

Ira Glass

Wow, this is so delightful and crazily creative it hurts. Ira Glass and the team at This American Life (recently photographed in great style by Meredith Heuer) produced a musical based on a true story, in which a high school student falls in love with a girl. Typical musical so far? Well, then there’s the twist that interested TAL: the girl is actually an undercover cop, who convinces the boy (an A student) to sell her marijuana. He gets arrested and goes to jail.
