It's Been a Minute with Sam Sanders
It's been a minute' is another way of saying 'let's catch up.' Host Sam Sanders does just that every Friday with two guests in a conversation about the news, culture, and everything. Not just what happened each week, but how it felt. Plus, Tuesday deep dives — conversations with one guest, or on one topic. The world is complicated and people are, too — and sometimes you just need to talk it out.
