Newsflash: "Ira" is a calendar model

Mar 12, 2010

We just got wind of the 2010 NYC Sex Bloggers Calendar, which features a picture of writer Melissa Gira Grant dressed as Ira Glass. Several years ago Melissa was a dancer at the famous unionized San Francisco strip club The Lusty Lady, when she happened across This American Life.

She writes: "I discovered the show accidentally when flipping the dial, and listened when working solo in the one-on-one fantasy booth. I thought I had found a pirate radio broadcast and kept it on between customers, turning the volume down fast with my foot when guys came in."

Anyone else listen to the show in unusual places? Tell us over at our Facebook page.
