Embedded returns March 9


September 7, 2017; Washington, D.C. - Since Inauguration Day, coverage of the new administration seems to pour out at a dizzying, daily pace that dominates the national conversation. In this next round of Embedded episodes, host Kelly McEvers and team slow things down to talk about the president in a way you haven't heard: the inside stories of what Donald Trump and some of his closest advisers were doing before they got to the White House.

"This is a president who has no public voting record, no military record," said McEvers. "But what he does have is a somewhat public record of doing business, and a very public record on television. Those records are rich in stories."

"This series highlights what Kelly McEvers and the Embedded team do best: dig deep into a story, go where the events happened, slow down and ask the questions that the constant barrage of news sometimes ignores," said Chris Turpin, NPR's Vice President of News Programming and Operations. "Embedded is an example of the type of news-driven podcast rooted in strong journalism that NPR does better than anyone else."

The first episode in this five-part series will be released on Thursday Oct. 5, 2017. The audio trailer is available now on

Shorter segments of the podcast will air on All Things Considered the same day each podcast is released.

Embedded launched in March 2016, quickly becoming one of the most popular and critically-acclaimed podcasts. It was named among the best podcasts of 2016 by The Atlantic, Vulture and IndieWire. Most recently the Embedded team reported on stories of police encounters and shootings caught on video by dissecting three very different incidents from around the country.

Embedded is available in the NPR One app, and wherever podcasts are available, including all major smart speakers.
