This is a heartbreaking and heartwarming episode. But can we talk about the fact that Philip Glass is Ira Glass' cousin?!? 🤯🤯🤯 I mean, now that I know, obviously. That part about Philip Glass composing in the middle of the night on vacation with Ira was hilarious.

💬 A great conversation

@mm Philip Glass is Ira Glass’ cousin??? What, do they have some kind of special brilliant person dust in their DNA?? Have added this to my To Listen list.

@danny i also really enjoyed it. So sad how all this time he could have been a role model to him. I hope her family is ashamed.
