    Flight Or Invisibility?

    A Fan From The Start

    I started listening way back and I took awhile to enjoy it. Now I am hooked. The show has become more nuanced and dimensional over time. Every episode is like a little work of art. Having worked in radio, I know how hard it is to pace a story. Ira glass also makes good use of...
