All Things Considered

Monday thru Friday, 4:00 - 7:00 PM

Since 1971, this afternoon radio newsmagazine has delivered in-depth reporting and transformed the way listeners understand current events and view the world. Heard by over 13 million people on nearly 700 radio stations each week, All Things Considered is one of the most popular programs in America. Every weekday, hosts Robert Siegel, Audie Cornish, Kelly McEvers, and Ari Shapiro present two hours of breaking news mixed with compelling analysis, insightful commentaries, interviews, and special—sometimes quirky—features.

The return of live music may still be a distant hope, but Jeff Tweedy has found plenty to keep him busy during the pandemic. The leader of Wilco has a new solo album called Love Is the King, on which he's traded his usual bandmates for people he's been quarantining with — his sons Spencer, who's 24, and Sammy, who's 20.
