Ira-Glass-Spotlight

Ira Glass of This American Life

Stories of kids using perfectly logical arguments, and arriving at perfectly wrong conclusions.

Host Ira Glass talks with Rebecca, who, using perfectly valid evidence, arrived at the perfectly incorrect conclusion that her neighbor, Ronnie Loeberfeld, was the tooth fairy. We hear her story. Ira also talks with Dr. Alison Gopnik, co-author of the book, The Scientist in the Crib, about what exactly kid logic is.

This American Life, Saturday at Noon and Sunday at 7:00 p.m. on NPR 89.1 FM/1550 AM.
