Ira Glass in Seattle — without Mike Daisey

Have a question for Ira Glass? Here’s your chance to ask it.

Glass, who hosts public radio’s “This American Life,” will bring a stage show called “Reinventing Radio” to Benaroya Hall on Sept. 8. He’ll talk about how stories are selected and produced for “This American Life”; share excerpts from the program; and take questions from the audience.

No doubt some Seattleites will want to hear more about “the retraction episode,” in which Glass confronted one-time Seattle playwright Mike Daisey about an earlier episode based on Daisey’s play “The Agony and the Ecstasy of Steve Jobs.” Glass, who originally presented “The Agony and the Ecstasy” as journalism, later questioned the veracity of Daisey’s reporting. As a result, Daisey took a pounding in the media and also was “uninvited” to be Cornish College’s commencement speaker.

Tickets for “Reinventing Radio” go on sale at 10 a.m. Monday, April 30. They range in price from $25 to $47, and will be available here.
