Ever wonder what makes the host of one of public radio's most beloved shows tick? What tunes he might play if given an hour to control the decks? Well wonder no more. Ira Glass sat in the studio with Steve Seel for an extended session of Theft of the Dial, and you'll be surprised at what you might hear... (hint, it might include a collaboration with a certain famous cousin of his).

Plus, check out the additional conversation Ira and Steve had about choosing the music for This American Life and the supposed media bias in public radio.
