Kelly McEvers says her new podcast Embedded is unique because it's a news podcast. "We take a story from the news, and we go deep," she says in this interview. "I'm in the soup of news every day." (As regular listeners know, she's also one of the hosts of NPR's All Things Considered.)
In an NPR news planning meeting, when something particularly interesting sticks out, she wants to learn more--to explore the "how" and "why" behind an event.
