At WBUR, we don’t endlessly chase just the next news cycle: we report the story with context. We talk to experts, advocates, analysts and people on the ground to moderate thoughtful discussions. WBUR helps you see and begin to understand the nuance. The story behind the story. The insights that help you shape – or question – your own perspective. We're here to help you get it.

When you listen to WBUR, you’ll feel like you're having a conversation with your smartest, most interesting friends and neighbors. Serious talk, for sure, but also stories that make you laugh, and others that make you cry. WBUR’s special brand of journalism helps you decode the complexities. Life is more manageable when you are in a position to assess and evaluate the onslaught of news headlines coming at you every day.

Context and understanding, insight and perspective — we’re committed to helping you get it every day. Explore our program schedule online and discover all of WBUR’s programs and podcasts. And feel free to email me suggestions at
