Weekdays at 9am
1A from WAMU and NPR is a new show for a changing America. Every day, host Joshua Johnson convenes a conversation about the most important issues of our time.
The show takes a deep and unflinching look at America, bringing context and insight to stories unfolding across the country and the world.
With a name inspired by the 1st amendment, 1A explores important issues such as policy, politics, technology, and what connects us across the fissures that divide the country. The program also delves into pop culture, sports, and humor.
1A’s goal is to act as a national mirror—taking time to help America look at itself and to ask what it wants to be. 1A is produced at WAMU 88.5, and distributed by NPR.
