What I Learned From Working With Ira Glass

“What I learned [from working with Ira Glass] is that a lot of it is just about the effort you put in and not about — I mean you have to have a creative brain, and part of it is that, being born with it, partly. But watching Ira work — a lot of times he just keeps thinking about it longer than other people think about it, and eventually he comes up with an idea that’s good. It made me realize: that’s how people get good ideas, by going through a lot of bad ideas first. ”
