Mike Birbiglia Got Notes on His Movie From a Ludicrously Foulmouthed Ira Glass

If there is one thing that you need to know about Ira Glass, aside from the fact that his voice has the texture of fine silk, it’s that he swears a lot in person. That’s according to Mike Birbiglia, who worked with Glass on Don’t Think Twice and had to suffer through the experience of getting notes from him in a Power Rangers–sized video conference. Point being, Ira Glass is everyone’s favorite hip creative-writing teacher, if that creative-writing teacher used language that would embarrass a 19th-century sea captain.
