It’s Been A Minute with Sam Sanders:  Sam engages with journalists, actors, musicians, and listeners to gain the kind of understanding about news and popular culture that can only be reached through conversation. Sam has worn many hats at NPR, including field producer and breaking news reporter. He’s no stranger to the Northwest, having worked at Oregon Public Broadcasting. In his free time, Sam runs, eats bacon, and continues his love/hate relationship with Twitter. Saturdays, 11AM – Noon, NPR News service
