This year's Goucher College graduates will likely enjoy one of region's quirkier commencement speeches.

The school announced that Ira Glass, host of public radio's "This American Life," will give the graduation keynote on May 18.

He'll also be getting an honorary degree from the school.

Glass is a Baltimore native. He grew up in Baltimore County and attended Milford Mill High.

Goucher also points out that he's the grandson of Frieda Friedlander from Goucher's Class of 1931.
