Radio : an illustrated guide [comic book] / Jessica Abel and Ira Glass.
[Chicago, Ill.] : [WBEZ], 1999, 2002.
[Multnomah County Library does not have this comic, but if it did, you’d find it under GN ABEL. If it were given a real call number, it would be something like 384.540657.]

Jessica Abel, fabulous cartoonist, was minding her own business and living her life when she got an unexpected telephone call from Ira Glass, who said, “Hi, would you like to make a comic book with me about how we make This American Life?” She said yes, and this book is the result. While the book does explain how This American Life is made each week (fascinating!), it also provides practical technical information and tips about how you can produce your own radio programs (useful!), all in lovely comic-book format.

You can buy Radio from the This American Life website if you want to (click on “General Store” and then scroll to the bottom of the page). Some excerpts are reproduced there, too.
