The Atlantic and WNYC Studios are announcing a partnership on a new podcast that will launch in early 2021. The Experiment, hosted by Julia Longoria, will examine the myths and ideas at the heart of the American experiment and the way powerful forces of history collide with our everyday lives.
Longoria joins WNYC Studios and The Atlantic from The New York Times, where she was a producer for The Daily and other longform audio projects, including Rabbit Hole.
Each week, The Experiment will bring listeners a deeply reported story that illuminates the way individual lives are being shaped by the seismic political and cultural changes we see in the headlines every day. Longoria and the team, in partnership with writers from across The Atlantic’s newsroom, will tell consequential and surprising stories that explore urgent questions of democracy, identity, and power that we all need to understand in this unique moment in history.
