About: Each month, America Abroad takes you on an hour-long audio journey deep inside an international news story. Field reports from around the globe give voice to those living in the middle of the critical issues of the day, and historical segments featuring archival audio and discussions with key policy makers provide crucial context. Co-anchors Ray Suarez and Deborah Amos deliver this unique mix of past and present to give listeners the whole story of what's happening in the world and what it all means.
About: American RadioWorks is the national documentary unit of American Public Media.
About: In their books Freakonomics and SuperFreakonomics, Steven D. Levitt and Stephen J. Dubner use the tools of economics to explore real-world behavior. As boring as that may sound, what they really do is tell stories — about cheating schoolteachers, self-dealing real-estate agents, and crack-selling mama's boys. American Public Media's Marketplace and public-radio station WNYC are now bringing those Freakonomics stories — and plenty of new ones — to the radio, with Dubner as host. Just like the books, Freakonomics Radio will explore "the hidden side of everything." It will tell you things you always thought you knew but didn't, and things you never thought you wanted to know, but do.
About: Rethink your point of view with Intelligence Squared U.S. (IQ2US), Oxford-style debates live from New York City. Based on the highly successful debate program in London, Intelligence Squared U.S. has presented 49 debates on a wide range of provocative and timely topics. From clean energy and the financial crisis, to the Middle East and the death of mainstream media, Intelligence Squared U.S. brings together the world's leading authorities on the day's most important issues.
About: The Moth is an acclaimed not-for-profit organization dedicated to the art and craft of storytelling. It is a celebration of both the raconteur, who breathes fire into true tales of ordinary life, and the storytelling novice, who has lived through something extraordinary and yearns to share it. At the center of each performance is, of course, the story — and The Moth's directors work with each storyteller to find, shape and present it.
About: Radiolab believes your ears are a portal to another world. Where sound illuminates ideas, and the boundaries blur between science, philosophy, and human experience. Big questions are investigated, tinkered with, and encouraged to grow. Bring your curiosity, and we'll feed it with possibility.
About: Take two nationally respected rock critics, the latest music news, personal commentary, and exclusive interviews and performances, add a huge pile of records old and new, and the result is Sound Opinions - the world's only rock and roll talk show. Based in Chicago, Sound Opinions is hosted by Jim DeRogatis and Greg Kot, two of the finest and best-recognized pop music writers who also write for some of the nation's most prestigious rock magazines, including Rolling Stone, Spin and Vibe. Every week, Sound Opinions fires up smart and spirited discussions about a wide range of popular music, from indie rock to classic rock, hip hop to R&B, and every genre under the sun.
