Let the speculation begin!

From James Rainey’s column in today’s Los Angeles Times on Ira Glass and his radio show, This American Life:

In the next few months, Glass said, the show will present “a huge, groundbreaking investigative piece of journalism” that it’s producing with the public-interest journalism site ProPublica.

When I spoke to him this week, Glass didn’t want to go into any more detail about the impending scoop.

You didn’t hear it here, but sources say the subject rhymes with “Povernor Gaterson.”
