If you’re a public radio fan, chances are you know and love Ira Glass, host of the popular weekly show and podcast "This American Life". The show started at WBEZ in Chicago in 1995, and in the 20 years since has become one of the world’s most popular public radio programs. It’s even made its way into pop culture, showing up on tv shows like "Saturday Night Live", "30 Rock", and "Orange is the New Black".

While the show is usually produced out of their studios in New York, "This American Life" has taken the show on the road with several different live performances. That includes his live dance show coming to the Wharton Center tomorrow, called "Three Acts, Two Dancers, One Radio Host".

Current State’s April Van Buren talks with Ira Glass about his 20 years on "This American Life" and his collaboration with the dancers in his show.
