Ira Glass is living proof that an internship can be a portal to an astonishing career.

Glass began his career in 1978 as a 19-year-old intern for NPR. Since then, he’s filled just about every chair imaginable at NPR Washington, from writer to editor, reporter to producer.

Seventeen years after starting at NPR, he created and began hosting a little show called This American Life.
