PRX Unwrapped

Hi friend of PRX,

Now that the NSA knows, we might as well tell all.

Next week, look for a new show pilot called Reveal that PRX is producing with The Center for Investigative Reporting. We will break a national story and dive into the impact great reporting has in communities.

Speaking of revealing, also look for We Knew JFK: Unheard Stories from the Kennedy Archives. Never-before-broadcast memories from JFK’s confidantes. Legendary journalist Robert MacNeil is the host. That’s coming Oct. 18.

Yes, we’re excited to whisper the news…


Series and Stuff

New for Fall

  • Alec Baldwin is back with 10 new episodes of Here’s The Thing, with guests including Fred Armisen, Rosie O’Donnell, Judd Apatow, and more.

New specials coming soon

  • From WAMU, Yesterday’s Dropouts: Meet adult students back in school, and hear why some think the GED could use some changes.
