New Programs Debut in April
Outside/In - Fridays at 2 pm and Saturdays at 3 pm (rebroadcast); limited run
From NHPR comes an environment show like no other, a show about the natural world and how we use it. Outside/In is inspired by the outdoors, but isn’t just for the outdoorsy. You'll hear about a man possessed by a dock, and one tasked with stirring romance...in moose. A town tangling with trees that stink, and one that could well be the model for the electric grid of the future. Tune in for our five-episode debut season, running April 22 through May 21.
Freakonomics Radio - Saturdays at 1 pm
It began when New York journalist and author Stephen J. Dubner went to Chicago to write about award-winning economist Steven D. Levitt for The New York Times Magazine. Dubner had been reluctant to take the assignment (he was in the middle of writing a book about the psychology of money). Levitt was reluctant to be shadowed by a journalist (but his mother loved the Times Magazine, so he gave in). The article came out, and led to an unexpected partnership. Levitt and Dubner wrote two books. Together, the books have sold 7 million copies worldwide. A lot of other stuff happened, too. A blog. A documentary film. A pair of pants. A radio show. Not bad for a partnership born of such profound reluctance.
Reveal - Sundays at 4 pm & Wednesdays at 7 pm (rebroadcast)
The mission of The Center for Investigative Reporting is to engage and empower the public through investigative journalism and groundbreaking storytelling in order to spark action, improve lives and protect our democracy.
With PRX, CIR co-produces the nationally distributed Reveal radio show and podcast. Reveal features CIR’s reporting, as well as stories from public radio stations and a wide range of media partners, both nonprofit and commercial. NHPR's Jack Rodolico was recently featured in a series of three episodes based on his investigative reporting on Lakeview Neurorehabilitation Center.
The New Yorker Radio Hour - Sundays at 1 pm
The New Yorker Radio Hour is a weekly program presented by the magazine’s editor, David Remnick, and produced by WNYC Studios and The New Yorker. Each episode features a diverse mix of interviews, profiles, storytelling, and an occasional burst of humor inspired by the magazine, and shaped by its writers, artists, and editors. This isn’t a radio version of a magazine, but something all its own, reflecting the rich possibilities of audio storytelling and conversation.
