Join WFIU for an evening with NPR's Steve Inskeep! Known for posing probing questions to everyone from presidents to warlords to musicians, Inskeep has a passion for stories of the less famous—like an American soldier who lost both feet in Afghanistan, or an Ethiopian woman’s extraordinary journey to the United States.
Since joining Morning Edition in 2004, Inskeep has hosted the program from New Orleans, Detroit, Karachi, Cairo, Houston, and Tehran; investigated Iraqi police in Baghdad; and received a 2006 Robert F. Kennedy journalism award for “The Price of African Oil” on conflict in Nigeria. In 2012, he traveled 2,700 miles across North Africa in the wake of the Arab Spring. In 2013, he reported from war-torn Syria, and on Iran's historic election. In 2014, he drove with colleagues 2,428 miles along the entire U.S.–Mexico border; the resulting radio series, “Borderland,” won widespread attention, as did the acclaimed NPR online magazine of the same name.
Doors will open for this reserved seating event at 7:30 p.m. The event will include a video component and Q&A session and is expected to last two hours.
