“The world is complicated right now. Let’s talk about it.”
Last election cycle, Sam Sanders emerged as a fresh voice and fan favorite as co-host of the NPR Politics Podcast. Now he’s bringing the same energy and enthusiasm to his new podcast to help listeners digest the week’s news and better understand the world.
In It’s Been a Minute, Sanders engages with journalists, newsmakers, and listeners about news, popular culture, sports, and more — to gain the kind of understanding only possible through open conversation.
Twice a week, 40-minute podcast episodes discuss what is going on in today’s world. One of the two podcast episodes per week provides a deep dive into today’s happenings while the other episode provides a weekly wrap up.
Starting October 2017, the show will also air as an hour-long weekly episode, designed for broadcast as part of NPR Member Stations weekend programming, merging the conversations held from that week’s podcast episodes.
