  • Chicago Symphony Orchestra Radio Broadcasts: The Chicago Symphony presents a full range of orchestral works under the seasoned baton of music director Riccardo Muti.

The two-hour Chicago Symphony Orchestra broadcasts include dynamic and innovative commentary which takes the listener behind the scenes and into the music. Airs Tuesdays at 7:00 p.m. on News & Music stations beginning March 5.
  • Notes from America with Kai Wright: Notes from America with Kai Wright is a show about the unfinished business of our history, and how we break its grip on our future. Can the United States be a democracy where people of different races, origins, and identities share power and opportunity? Is it even possible, and what would it take to succeed? Each week, host Kai Wright invites listeners to gather for intimate conversations and deeply reported stories in which we wrestle with these questions. Airs Mondays at 9:00 p.m. on News & Talk stations beginning April 1.
  • The Ezra Klein Show: New York Times columnist and Vox co-founder/edit-at-large Ezra Klein speaks with a variety of guests about ideas that matter. Airs Tuesdays at 9:00 p.m. on News & Talk stations beginning April 2.

From Afronauts, to why we argue, to a deep dive on animal lifespans: see the world in a new way. Find the answers to all those questions of science that have puzzled people around the world – and maybe have your own questions answered as well! Airs Wednesdays at 11:00 p.m. on News & Talk stations beginning April 3.
  • No Small Endeavor: What does it mean to live a good life? What is true happiness? What are the habits and practices that lead to human flourishing? No Small Endeavor examines these questions with host Lee C. Camp. Airs Thursdays at 11:00 p.m. on News & Talk stations beginning April 4.
  • Embodied: Sex and relationships are intimate — and sometimes intimidating to talk about. In this award-winning show, host Anita Rao guides us on an exploration of our brains and bodies that touches down in taboo territory. Airs Fridays at 11:00 p.m. on News & Talk stations beginning April 5.
  • Travel with Rick Steves: Travel with Rick Steves is a weekly one-hour conversation about travel, cultures, people, and the things we find around the world that give life its extra sparkle. Airs Saturdays at 6:00 a.m. on News & Talk stations beginning April 6.
