[Video]: Ira Glass on Taste and Talent

Ira Glass is a bit of a polymath – an iconic radio personality on This American Life, a novelist and producer, he has been instrumental in the success of many others – inciting novelist David Sedaris’ explosive rise to fame by inviting him to read on his radio show, and co-writing and producing comedian Mike Birbiglias’ film Sleepwalk With Me.

In a short but sweet videographic, Ira talks about the difference between raw talent, developing skill, and the sense of taste that tells you when your work isn’t quite what you wanted it to be.
