Featured podcasts and special audio projects:

Tested is a hard look at how North Carolina and its neighbors face the day's challenges. Hosted by journalists Dave DeWitt and Leoneda Inge

WUNC Politics is a free-flowing discussion of what we're hearing in the back hallways of the General Assembly and on the campaign trail across North Carolina.

Embodied recognizes that sex and relationships are intimate – and sometimes intimidating to talk about. Host Anita Rao guides us on an exploration of our brains and our bodies that touches down in taboo territory.

The State of Things brings the issues, personalities, and places of North Carolina to you.

CREEP is an unexpected audio documentary for these challenging times. Journalists Elizabeth Friend and Laura Pellicer team up to tell the story of how the COVID-19 pandemic changed our relationship with the animals.

Criminal is a podcast about crime. Not so much the "if it bleeds, it leads," kind of crime. Something a little more complex. Stories of people who've done wrong, been wronged, and/or gotten caught somewhere in the middle. We're a proud member of Radiotopia, from PRX, a curated network of extraordinary, story-driven shows.

This Is Love is a podcast from the makers of "Criminal" that investigates life's most persistent mystery. Stories of sacrifice, obsession, and the ways in which we bet everything on each other.

Ft. Bragg Stories uses personal narratives to explore life on and around this country's largest military base. It's a collaboration between the Fayetteville Observer and WUNC's American Homefront Project.

American Songster Radio is a look at the roots of American Popular music. It’s hosted by world renowned musician and folklorist Dom Flemons who playfully refers to himself as The American Songster. 

Songs We Love is a collection of choice songs from WUNC Music.

Stories With A Heartbeat is a podcast about the human condition. Host Will McInerney has been traveling the globe exploring conflict and what it says about us as people. This podcast weaves together interviews, sound, music and poetic reflection into 15 minutes that will pull listeners in and encourage them to explore nuanced dilemmas.  No longer in production.

In Everything Happens, writer and professor Kate Bowler talks with doctors, writers, humorists, preachers and others about the rich, moving and sometimes funny lessons they learned when life stopped being bright and shiny. Everything Happens is produced in partnership with Duke University.
