Each week, It's Been a Minute features people in the culture who deserve your attention. Plus weekly wraps of the news with journalists in the know.
Sam Sanders is no longer the host of It's Been a Minute, but here's a interview that summarizes what the show is about and how it started:
During the 2016 election, Sam Sanders quickly emerged as a compelling new voice, and became a fan favorite as one of the hosts of the NPR Politics Podcast. His trademark curiosity and empathy connected with listeners. For the past several months he's been bringing those qualities to his podcast It's Been a Minute. His basic concept: the world is complicated. Let's talk it out.
Now it's become a one-hour weekly radio program engaging audiences with timely and topical discussions. Sam talks with journalists, newsmakers, and listeners about news, popular culture, and the internet -- stories big and small, about all subjects, with equal vigor and interest.
It's Been a Minute provides an irreverent, casual space for listeners who don’t know how to process the pace of current events but can’t think about anything else.
