KACU Adds “Hidden Brain,” “The Moth,” And More

Image of program logos

We've updated our programming schedule in response to an audience survey conducted in June. View the full schedule online. 

Listeners love programs that create space to slow down and think deeply about interesting ideas. We've identified the 9 a.m. hour weekdays as a place to introduce new programs like those typically heard in the "Get Smarter Hour." Every morning, you'll hear fascinating discussions and in-depth reporting on human behavior, health, science and innovation. More on "Reveal," "Hidden Brain," "The Pulse," "To The Best of Our Knowledge," "Planet Money" and "How I Built This."

In addition to the morning updates, we welcome "Think" at 2 p.m. weekdays. Host Krys Boyd shares compelling, in-depth interviews with prominent figures from a wide variety of subjects. Previous guests include Rev. Jesse Jackson, Jane Goodall, Sen. John Cornyn, artist Frank Stella, author Malcolm Gladwell, actor Bryan Cranston and filmmaker Werner Herzog. 

On Saturdays, we introduce "The Moth," "Milk Street Radio," "eTown" and "Women in Music." On Sunday evenings, we've added "Return to the Source" to our jazz lineup.
