From the American heartland of Lake Wobegon to Town Hall in New York City, acclaimed musician Chris Thile hosts the variety show that’s as homespun as it is sharp.

For two hours every weekday, local host Laura Lorson and All Things Considered hosts Robert Siegel, Audie Cornish, Kelly McEvers and Ari Shapiro present the program's trademark mix of news, interviews, commentaries, reviews and offbeat features.

About the show: All Things Considered

In 1977, All Things Considered expanded to seven days a week with a one-hour show on Saturdays and Sundays. NPR's Arun Rath hosts on the weekends. During each broadcast, stories and reports come to listeners from NPR reporters and correspondents based throughout the United States and the world. The hosts interview newsmakers and contribute their own reporting.

NPR's exciting new show features puzzles, word games and trivia played in front of a live audience. Ask Me Another is a co-production of NPR and WNYC in New York.

Newshour is BBC World Service's flagship international news and current affairs program. It consists of news bulletins on the hour and half hour, international interviews and in-depth reports of world news.

BBC OS gives a vibrant account of the day’s events with explanation and reaction from those involved. ​Broadcast live from the BBC newsroom. Combining your news sources and ours. 

The BBC World Service is the world's largest international broadcaster, broadcasting news, speech and discussions in 28 languages to many parts of the world. The World Service was reported to have reached 188 million people a week on average in June 2009. It does not carry advertising, and the English language service broadcasts 24 hours a day.

Cordelia and music are long-entwined. Her dad was a jazz fanatic and her mom was especially keen on 20th century opera. Cordelia chose violin and piano as the first things she could do well that also interested her, after reading or being outside.
