let’s have more farmer radio, please!

This book, co-written by Ira Glass and Jessica Abel will tell you how.

Radio: An Illustrated Guide gives you an inside look at how This American Life is made. But even better, it’s a step-by-step primer on how to make a radio story. The book includes detail on where we find our stories, how to structure a story, how to do an interview, how to hold the microphone, how to edit sound, how to write a script…really everything you’d need to get started. It’s 32 black-and-white pages long, with appropriately fancy color covers, and was drawn by cartoonist Jessica Abel and written by Jessica and Ira Glass.

Don’t forget to listen to Greenhorn Radio every Thursday on the Heritage Radio Network.
