Join NPR and member stations for live conversations about what lies ahead for 2022

What's Next?
What's Next?

After reflecting on the past 50 years of NPR, we're considering what's next for our culture and communities. How do we process this moment in time? What are we taking with us into 2022 (and the 50 years ahead)?

To do this, we are hosting several live conversations on Twitter Spaces called What's Next: An NPR Conversation Series, with a mix of NPR and member station journalists. Follow us on Twitter to listen in as we discuss topics including climate change, the future of live TV and how we cover Indigenous communities.


The schedule is subject to change. Follow us on Twitter for updates and to join in.
