About the Podcast
The Outside Podcast applies Outside's longstanding literary storytelling methods to the audio realm, creating features that will both entertain and inform listeners along the way. We launched in March 2016 with our first series, Science of Survival, which was developed in partnership with PRX, distributors of the idolized This American Life and The Moth Radio Hour, among others. The series is produced with support from the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation and its commitment to storytelling around STEM issues. We have since launched two additional series, The Outside Interview, which has editor Christopher Keyes interrogating the biggest figures in sports, adventure, and politics, and Dispatches, a diverse range of stories on newsworthy topics.
