NPR’s Embedded: Mitch


In a five-part Embedded podcast series this summer, NPR’s Kelly McEvers does a deep reporting dive into the life, work, and legacy of Senate Majority Leader, Mitch McConnell.

This fall, McEvers and special guests are coming to McConnell’s hometown of Louisville, Kentucky for a special live conversation about what they found in their reporting and how they got there - placing McConnell’s local story into a national context.

Kelly McEvers is a two-time Peabody Award-winning journalist and former host of NPR's flagship newsmagazine, All Things Considered. She spent much of her career as an international correspondent, reporting from Asia, the former Soviet Union, and the Middle East. She is the creator and host of the acclaimed Embedded podcast, a documentary show that goes to hard places to make sense of the news. She began her career as a newspaper reporter in Chicago.

Special guests TBD.

The episode will be recorded for possible publication at a later date.

VIP Meet & Greet tickets include premium seating and a post-show meet and greet with the Embedded team. Patrons will receive an email with full details and instructions a few days before the show.
