Living in this current climate, it's almost impossible to follow politics without a basic understanding of pop culture. NPR’s latest podcast, It’s Been A Minute hosted by Sam Sanders, aims to discover where politics and pop culture meet then explore that intersection. There's a tradition of great talk shows at NPR with roots in the conversations we all have at our desks or in our homes. Sam Sanders, original co-host of NPR Politics, has a talent for conversation. As a politics and pop culture junkie, Sam’s podcast keeps listeners up to date with a recap the week’s news and culture including deep conversations with artists, writers, journalists and more. The live event will engage, educate and entertain audiences of all ages including a conversation with Chicago-born author, comedian and blogger Samantha Irby about the current political climate and a recap the latest news headlines and events. Sanders sums up the podcast with just a few words: “I want to be informed and curious…And I want to be open and affirming.”
