All Things Considered: Reporting on Russian Election

As the U.S. continues to investigate Russian meddling in the 2016 election, Russia is set to have a presidential election of its own. NPR's Mary Louise Kelly will co-host All Things Considered live from Russia on Friday, March 16 and Monday, March 19.

She'll report on how Russians view the U.S. investigation into election meddling, how sanctions imposed by the U.S. have sparked a Russian farm-to-table movement, what it means to be running a doomed opposition campaign, plus live analysis from Moscow on the election results.

You're Invited: Podcast Launch and Listening Party

Claire Donnelly
Have you ever heard a local legend about Oklahoma and wondered if it was true? KGOU's Claire Donnelly wondered about some of the tales she heard since moving here from Chicago. She's producing and hosting KGOU's new podcast researching some of those stories; we're calling it How Curious.

From folklore to the state's colorful history, you can suggest questions and ideas of your own to news@kgou.org.

You're invited to be among the first to hear the premiere  episode of How Curious at a listening event on Wednesday, March 14 at 7 p.m. at Full Circle Bookstore in Oklahoma City. You can RSVP -- and share the invitation with your friends -- on Facebook.

Invisibilia, NPR's limited-run series about the unseen forces that influence our lives, makes its season debut this weekend. Season 4 will examine how the stories we tell ourselves can lock us into one place or another... and what happens in the space in between. In episode one, hosts Alix Spiegel and Hanna Rosin ask: Are we destined to repeat our patterns or can we stray in surprising directions? Invisibilia is KGOU's Sunday Radio Matinee beginning March 11 at 12 p.m.
