Public radio program "This American Life" has spent the last 20 years broadcasting an eclectic mix of journalistic essays and stories, with both emotional and hilarious moments.

Ira Glass, the show's creator, offers an inside look at his hugely popular program at 8 p.m. Saturday, May 3, at Mount Baker Theatre, 104 N. Commercial St.

Glass blends education and entertainment as he relates what makes a compelling story, where he and the producers find their amazing stories, and how he and his staff try to push broadcast journalism to do things it doesn't usually do.

Tickets, $20 to $55, are at 360-734-6080 and mountbakertheatre.com.
