Ira Glass and Podcasting

Excerpt from “Milestones” at

Glass grew up in an area where smart kids were expected to become doctors, but he always had an interest in media. He took two summer jobs, one at a hospital, one at NPR: “At the end of that summer, it seemed very clear which one was more appealing.” Glass says that the best thing to do is force yourself into doing the work, and the skills will eventually com; he believes hard work can make a person talented. “… even the stuff you’re really good at, you’re not good at right away.”
