NPR grew up alongside a post-Watergate journalism ethos that shaped the media industry for decades. Hosted by Audie Cornish and featuring other NPR journalists, we'll unpack that ethos: how it developed in the newsroom and changed over time, through today.

Analytical, critical and forward thinking, this program tells the story of NPR's history in the context of the growth of modern media.

Part 1: How NPR Set the Tone for Public Radio

Part 2: How NPR Grew as a Network

Part 3: NPR in the Digital Space
