For 23 years, the Broadcast Journalist Series has welcomed accomplished journalists and correspondents to Minnesota for a 24-hour residency. These exciting national reporters and correspondents provide insights on their craft and the people and events that have shaped their careers, in one of the longest-running journalist residence programs in public radio. Each session is recorded for broadcast on MPR News. Hosted by MPR's Tom Weber, all events take place at the University of St. Thomas O'Shaughnessy Education Center. 

On October 23rd, we welcome Joshua Johnson the host of 1A, a new program inspired by the 1st Amendment that brings new insight and inquiry to the most pressing issues of our time.
