NPR In The News: Here, There And Everywhere Edition

Between tech conferences on the West coast, our Election 2012 Team reporting from Presidential primaries and NPR programs hitting the road to tape shows around the country, it's been a busy few weeks keeping track of everyone around NPR. As the traveling continues, This is NPR will have the latest photos and news. To start, check out what's going on with your favorite shows and reporters in these reports from other media:

- Stephen Colbert is putting NPR's Fresh Air host Terry Gross in the hot seat on The Colbert Report tonight, talking about her show, NPR and anything else that comes up. Follow the conversation on Twitter #freshaironcolbert.

- What do Michael Jackson and Wait Wait... Don't Tell Me! have in common? Host Peter Sagal. Find out why in The Detroit News' interview with Sagal before Wait Wait... Don't Tell Me's live show at Detroit's Fox Theatre last Thursday. The local TV show FlashPOINT also had Peter on as a guest; watch the video here.

- Accounts from David Greene and David Gilkey's reporting journey on the Trans-Siberian Railroad may be reminiscent of the plot of a new Hangover movie — but with much better pictures. At least the New York Times thinks so. Check out their Lens blog interview with David Gilkey here.

- NPR Music's First Listen series is currently streaming Leonard Cohen's album Old Ideas as featured in American Songwriter, BlackBook Magazine and Philadelphia Inquirer this week.

- It was one big reality check of-a-day for many when Wikipedia and other high-volume sites closed for business last week in protest of anti-piracy legislation. But NPR, The Washington Post and The Guardian helped answer some of those pesky questions. CNN, Bloomberg and Yahoo! News picked up on the substitute.

- Reviews of the new voice-controlled NPR News App continue to roll in from LA Times, Car and Driver and Motor Trend.

- Adam Davidson talks banks...or "A world without banks" as a panelist on Saturday's CNN:Your Money episode. Check out the discussion below:
