NPR’s Embedded podcast enters the world of The Capital Gazette newspaper in Annapolis, Md., where a gunman murdered five people in June 2018.

Listener Calls Out NPR For Lack of Dinosaur Coverage
An 8-year-old recently wrote to All Things Considered to complain. Leo Shidla listens in the car with his mother in and around Minneapolis. He said he listens a lot, but he hadn't heard enough stories about nature and his favorite things, dinosaurs, to satisfy his curiosity. So this past Tuesday, the show gave him a chance to ask questions of a paleontologist, and to consider the things that are important to him. Listen to the conversation and find a link to a special dinosaur-centric playlist on the NPR One app.
