WNYC and Minnesota Public Radio (MPR) are joining forces to convene a nightly gathering for everyday Americans to talk, debate, and find common ground in the first 100 days of the new administration.
Beginning on Monday, January 23 – and airing Mondays through Thursdays from 8-9pm EST for 14 weeks -- “Indivisible” will feature a different host and focus each night, bringing listeners across every divide together to weigh in and participate in lively, candid, and inclusive conversations.
Hosts include radio personalities whose work is distinguished by its focus on listener interaction: WNYC’s Peabody Award-winning public affairs host Brian Lehrer; longtime conservative talk radio host Charlie Sykes; Kai Wright, host of WNYC’s critically-acclaimed podcasts There Goes the Neighborhood and The United States of Anxiety with co-hosts in London John Prideaux, the US Editor of The Economist, and Anne McElvoy, a senior editor of the newspaper and editor of Economist Radio; and Kerri Miller, host of MPR News and Talking Volumes.
The focus of each evening is as follows:
WNYC’s Kai Wright will build on the issues he explored in The United States of Anxiety to survey America’s cultural fault lines and invite callers to discuss the divides and how to bridge them.
WNYC's Brian Lehrer hosts a program evaluating how -- and how quickly --American norms are changing. How are language, ethics, the law, and our institutions adopting new contours under a new and unprecedented leader?
Charlie Sykes, a leading voice in conservative talk radio for 25 years, will interview policy makers and engage listeners in conversation that weighs developments in the new administration’s first 100 days against American values and conservative principles.
Minnesota Public Radio's Kerri Miller will examine American identity at this moment of change. Who is a part of the national narrative, who feels left out, and how might our long-term sense of ourselves change? This program will be produced by MPR News in St. Paul, Minnesota.
