Why do we take? Explained today to the radio?

Not everyone listens (yet) to podcasts and we want to reach as wide an audience as possible. By partnering with local public radio stations, we join journalists who share our mission to give people the information and insight they need to understand the world and the communities in which they live.

Will the show change anything? Are we getting any songs?!

Explained today is always evolving and we don’t want to rest on our laurels – all 1,000+ episodes of it. We have continued to update the show for the past four years, most recently adding Noel King as our newest host. That change allows us to plan even more ambitious series and field reporting from Sean Rameswaram, Noel and the rest. Explained today team.

That said, the spirit of the show will remain unchanged. Every day the show will help our listeners by diving deep to explain one story or problem.

And yes, they will always be there original songs
