The National Conversation with All Things Considered is hosted by NPR's Ari Shapiro and Michel Martin. During that hour NPR presents a live national conversation to engage with listeners and answer questions focused on the coronavirus crisis, using a combination of social media sourcing and audience call-outs, in addition to expert interviews.
NPR also gathers questions from listeners and readers about the coronavirus and stories of how people are coping, surviving, and thriving in the new reality from around the country on social media and through NPR.org/nationalconversation. Listeners can also share their questions for NPR's reporters and outside experts using the hashtag #nprconversation on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram. Special guests are featured to answer questions on everything from epidemiology to economics to exercising at home.
