Listen Up


WFYI’s new speaker series, Listen Up, brings public media personalities to Indianapolis for thought-provoking and inspiring conversation. You’re familiar with the reporting of public media’s national and international journalists; now spend an evening with them, as they share their perspectives on news and storytelling.

THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 13

Listen Up with Kelly McEvers
Kelly McEvers is the host of Embedded, NPR’s podcast that takes stories from the news and goes deeper. The show has dug into members of the Trump administration’s pasts, reported additional stories behind police shootings caught on video, and visited a town ravaged by the opioid epidemic.

Before working on Embedded full-time in February 2018, Kelly McEvers was also a co-host of All Things Considered, NPR’s award-winning afternoon news magazine. She hosted the program from NPR West in Culver City, California.
