They're sold out. Fuck.
Somehow I'm not surprised. I saw Ira Glass back in 2004 and he gives a wonderful talk.
I wonder if anyone will be posting a record... I'd *love* to go.
Yeah, Jeremy they sold out months ago. I'm on the waiting list, but not hopeful. :-(
If this is his regular talk, a lot of the material he usually covers is also available online in this video. It might be different with David Rakoff there but we won't know, will we? T_T
No tickets available online, I hope they aren't sold out already (five months in advance!)
