Ira Glass and Mike Birbiglia Make a Movie

Hosted by and

Ira Glass of This American Life talks with Kim Masters about the various dealings he's had in the movie business over the last a decade -- most notably as producer of the 2006 film Unaccompanied Minors, which was based on a segment on This American Life. Now he's taken a more hands-on role as producer and co-writer of the indie feature film, Sleepwalk with Me. Based on comedian Mike Birbiglia's one-man show, which was also a book and a segment on This American Life, the movie stars Birbiglia who also co-directed and co-wrote the film. The two talk with Kim about the untraditional way they financed the movie and the active role they've take in the distribution of it.
