Giveaway: Ira Glass at WAC

Who’s ready for a new contest? You’s ready for a new contest?

How about a couple of tickets to see Ira Glass, host and producer of This American Life at the Walton Arts Center on Saturday January 31st, 2009 at 8pm?

How to Enter:
For those of you who are fans of the show, leave a comment below telling us which episode of This American Life is among your favorites.

If you’re unfamiliar with This American Life, that’s OK. Just give us your best guess as to how you think you’ve managed to co-exist in the same world as a 14-year-old, award-winning program that stretches across 500 public radio stations each week and whose host was named “Best Radio Host in America” by Time Magazine after just five years of the show’s existence.

I’ll go first and say that 1997’s Something for Nothing (particularly Act One: Hands on a Hardbody) is one of my favorites.

This American Life can be heard weekends on KUAF 91.3FM or through the show’s podcast version on iTunes.

A few rules (read ’em carefully):

  • You may only enter this specific contest once. If you enter this contest more than once you’ll be automatically disqualified.
