I’m thrilled to welcome GlobalPost’s audience to PRI.org. We’ve merged our sites, our award-winning coverage and our teams — both on air and online — to give you the smartest take on the news, issues and cultural stories around the world.
We bring you daily digital and audio reporting from PRI’s The World, The Takeaway, Science Friday, Studio 360, The Tavis Smiley Show, Innovation Hub and Living on Earth. And we have expanded that coverage with GlobalPost’s correspondents and networks in Asia, the Middle East and South America, as well as its special investigations worldwide.
Whether you are coming to PRI.org for the first time or have been a long-time fan, take a moment to discover our expanded site and our specialty beats. Click on Sections in the menu to find, and follow, our work on Global Politics, Business and Finance, Arts and Culture, Science, Sports, Lifestyle and more.
You might explore our Across Women’s Lives coverage on how gender equity affects the health and well-being of communities around the globe. Or understand more about the US as a Global Nation and how immigrant life is influencing American identity. You’ll find those beats and our latest coverage on issues like the 2016 Election in the Featured tab on the menu.
You can also listen to PRI’s huge range of podcasts by clicking on Featured. You’ll find Whose Century Is It? hosted by longtime China correspondent Mary Kay Magistad, exploring the ideas, trends and twists shaping the 21st century. There’s The World in Words about languages and the people who speak them and Otherhood about life in the US for families of immigrants.
If you love audio storytelling or are just a fan of a particular show, you’ll find PRI’s programs under the About PRI tab. That’s also where you can find the very latest from GlobalPost’s correspondents and investigations in one place. You can also read or listen to the rich audio stories and interviews from PRI’s The World, The Takeaway, Studio 360, Living on Earth and others.
The very best way to keep up with our new, expanded global coverage, though, is to subscribe to our daily e-mail, The Scan. We highlight the stories that most interest us each weekday morning. As you subscribe, you’ll find our other less-frequent newsletters, following our specialty beats.
PRI and GlobalPost’s union represents a commitment and a belief that the world is worth exploring, in person, online, from your phone or radio. At a time when others are cutting back, we’re expanding our efforts to find stories abroad, as the world itself becomes more interconnected.
We hope you enjoy the new PRI and GlobalPost and we invite you to join the conversation among our thoughtful community of fans. Every story can be the start of a conversation in our comments section at the end of the page, so bookmark the PRI.org homepage or the new GlobalPost page. Or discuss the world with other fans by following PRI, GlobalPost or our shows and beats on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
Welcome to GlobalPost’s new home. We are so glad to have you with us.
