Michel McQueen Martin is an Emmy Award–winning American journalist and correspondent for ABC News and National Public Radio. Martin, who came to NPR in January 2006 to develop the program, has spent more than 25 years as a journalist — first in print with major newspapers and then in television. Tell Me More marks her debut as a full-time public radio show host. "What makes public radio special is that it's got both intimacy and reach all at once. For the cost of a phone call, I can take you around the world. But I'm right there with you in your car, in your living room or kitchen or office, in your iPod. Radio itself is an incredible tool and when you combine that with the global resources of NPR plus the commitment to quality, responsibility and civility, it's an unbeatable combination."
While working on the development of Tell Me More, Martin also served as contributor and substitute host for NPR newsmagazines and talk shows, including Talk of the Nation and News & Notes.
Marco Werman is the fulltime host of "PRI's The World," and he oversees production of the program's daily Global Hit segment.
Werman has been working in journalism since he was a 16 year-old copy boy at the "News and Observer" in Raleigh, N.C. He discovered radio journalism while working as a freelancer for two years just north of Togo in Burkina Faso for the BBC World Service, where he later worked as a producer. In 1990, he launched a new public radio station in New York State's Adirondacks and hosted a daily two-hour news and public affairs show there for four years. This was followed by a stint in Rome, Italy, where he was the correspondent for Monitor Radio.
In 1995 he was invited to assist in creating the format for PRI's "The World." In 1997 he began providing its daily punctuation mark, the Global Hit segment, in which musicians and musical trends around the globe are linked to the news. Marco was appointed as fulltime host on Jan. 1, 2013.
Werman's experience includes documentary photography, print, radio and television. He co-produced and hosted "Nordic Rock," a 20-minute feature on cutting-edge electronic music in Iceland that appeared on PBS' "Frontline World." A 2007 Emmy Award-winner, he is currently developing a new series for PBS on global music called "Sound Tracks."
Philosophy on the radio? You've got to be kidding? Well, sometimes we do (kid, that is). Mostly we look at today's important ideas with an eye to thinking them through. Philosophy Talk is a weekly, one-hour radio series. The hosts' down-to-earth and no-nonsense approach brings the richness of philosophic thought to everyday subjects. Topics are lofty (Truth, Beauty, Justice), arresting (Terrorism, Intelligent Design, Suicide), and engaging (Baseball, Love, Happiness). This is not a lecture or a college course; it's philosophy in action! Philosophy Talk is a fun opportunity to explore issues of importance to your audience in a thoughtful, friendly fashion, where thinking is encouraged.
