“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 debuts a new podcast, the Sam Sanders Project that helps listeners digest the news and better understand their world.
In his new show, launching the week of June 19, Sanders will engage 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, a 30-minute podcast episodes will be released discussing what is going on in today’s world. One of the two podcast episodes per week will provide a deep dive into today’s happenings while the other episode will provide 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.
