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.
