This American Laugh: Torey Malatia on Radio Humor

President of Chicago Public Radio and cofounder of the hit radio series This American Life, Torey Malatia is the butt of Ira Glass's radio jokes on a weekly basis. Listen and laugh as Malatia, having scoured the audio archives, shares humorous radio stories, jokes old and new, and a cornucopia of laugh-out-loud audio playfulness.

Presented in partnership with Chicago Public Radio and generously sponsored by Carol Rosofsky and Robert Lifton.

Recorded Saturday, November 14, 2009 at Northwestern University School of Law-Thorne Auditorium
