- Email to 1A -at- wamu.org
- Slide into our mentions
- Try our app, Vox Pop. You can get it on the App Store or Google Play. And you can learn more about it here.
If you want to know what we’re planning, our shows page is updated daily, or you can text 1A to 1-833-200-2111 to get a few messages a week on what we’re planning (standard message rates may apply, and you can text STOP any time to end the messages). If you have something to say about an upcoming topic, send us a text or tweet, or give us a call.
We’re also always looking for ideas for shows. If you have an idea, or even if you just have a question you’d like 1A to try to answer, please let us know. But, before you send, please keep in mind that we get a ton of pitches. To make yours stand out…
- Familiarize yourself with the show: We’ve covered everything from aliens to how to make six figures without a college degree, and we’re really interested in shows that can explain something about the world through civil discourse. One example of a listener-suggested show is our hour on gerrymandering.
- Condense! 1A topics generally last an hour, which feels like a second in the studio. The best pitches and questions to us are brief — they fit into one sentence. (If you need some inspiration for sharpening your prose, our interview with legendary wordsmith Sir Harold Evans might help)
