Radio: An Illustrated Guide

Thanks to Paul O. for recommending this very cool graphic book called Radio: An Illustrated Guide by Jessica Abel and Ira Glass. The book chronicles the experience of creating a radio show for This American Life, hosted by Ira Glass. The graphic novel is perfect for this venture, I think, because it shows you different nuances of how a radio story comes together over the course of many weeks, from one idea to an emerging theme.

For anyone interested in getting a look behind the scenes of a thoughtful and frenetic radio program, this book is for you.

Peace,
Kevin
