NPR’s Steve Inskeep is Coming to Knoxville–And He Wants to Hang Out!

In The Daily Dumpster Blog by Clay Dudaleave a COMMENT

inskeep-fullNPR’s Morning Edition host Steve Inskeep is coming to Knoxville and he wants you to come hang out, listen to his show, and talk about politics — at 5 a.m. on a Thursday morning.

But at least it’s free, right?

NPR Generation Listen and local NPR station WUOT are hosting a live listening party followed by a meet-and-greet and Q&A with Inskeep at Holly’s Gourmet Market starting at 5 a.m. on Thursday, April 21. It’s free, but space is limited. You can RSVP here (it says  you can RSVP, but you should still show up early to secure a seat). Holly’s Gourmet Market is located at 5107 Kingston Pike. Hopefully they’ll be serving coffee.

Inskeep will be exploring the question, “how does where you live define what your need from your government?” In stories airing on NPR, Inskeep is looking in to what matters to voters, and how much their surrounding like land, streets, and the cities where they live impact their experiences with the political process.

A live recording of Morning Edition will happen 5-7 a.m. followed by a Q&A and chance to mingle from 7-9 a.m.


Former Mercury staff reporter Clay Duda has covered gangs in New York, housing busts in Atlanta, and wildfires in Northern California. And lots of stuff about Knoxville.
