Dear Ira Glass,

Just wanted to write and wish you luck on David Letterman tonight! Since I don't have Showtime, I haven't been able to watch the televised version of This American Life so I will have to be content with that small sighting, you sandwiched between Jessica Biel (Tufts alum, by the way) and Regina Spektor. (And come on, let's be honest, Dave is going to extend his chat with Jessica so you might consider having your very funniest material at the ready up top, just in case you're cut short.)
I also wanted to confess that your job is one of those dream jobs of mine, where in a different time and place I might give you a run for your money in the NPR radio talent contest. Rest assured, though, that I am content and ensconced in my own little life.
Your faithful listener,


If, like me, you've ever thought it would be a great gig to host a public radio show like This American Life, you can find out more here (hint, hint, Matt). If you live in the Boston area, you're in luck! They're holding an open house to help you record your 2-minute audition. To vote, go here and they will randomly choose an entry for you to rate.
