Sam Sanders

Host, "It's Been a Minute"

On NPR's new weekly one-hour program It's Been a Minute, host Sam Sanders talks with journalists, newsmakers, and listeners about news, popular culture, and the Internet. Think of it as an irreverent, casual space for listeners who don't know how to process the pace of current events, but can't think about anything else.

As a former key member of NPR's election unit, Sam covered the intersection of culture, pop culture, and politics in the 2016 election, and was one of the original cohosts of the NPR Politics Podcast, which launched in 2015. In his free time, Sanders runs, eats bacon, and continues his love/hate relationship with Twitter.
