Tell Me More

Weekdays, 4pm - 5pm
Michel Martin

Bold, honest, engaging, Tell Me More is a new interview show from NPR News. Host Michel Martin welcomes guests to a safe place for difficult conversations and invites us to listen in. From international newsmakers to everyday people, from spiritual leaders to foreign correspondents, Tell Me More strives to reveal whole stories from many, different perspectives.

Tell Me More is a gathering place for dialogue about the important issues facing the country,” says Martin. “But we also talk about the challenges and opportunities we all face living in a fast-paced, complex society.”

When a story emerges in the news, Tell Me More asks “Are we getting the truth? Is that real?” The show digs in to pursue stories and ideas that uncover, explain, and portray experiences and people that are rarely given voice yet speak to how we live.

Two mothers share the grief of losing children to gun violence, yet they’re opposed on the issue of gun control. They join Martin for a frank conversation about their experiences and opinions.

A man leaves his office job after 20 years to play classical guitar in the New York subway. A commuter drops him a $20 tip. A homeless man pays him with cheese. Hear his story in his own words.

Tired of being a baseball widow, a woman embarks on a quest to become a sports fan over the course of a season. She tells Martin how she did it, and what she learned about fandom.

A church in California faces a challenge when a sex offender asks to join the community. Listen in as the minister and members of the congregation talk to Martin about how the decision of whether to welcome him, and how each of them is dealing with it.

Tell Me More lets me bring together two longtime passions,” says Martin, “the intimacy and warmth you experience with powerful radio, and the lively, sharp debate about things going on in the world that I enjoy having with friends of diverse backgrounds.”
