Joshua Johnson is one of public radio’s most versatile new hosts. Each weekday on 1A, he leads a national conversation about some of the biggest issues of our time – technology, race, politics, education. He also hosts programs on topics like dating and video games.

About 4 million people listen to 1A each week. The show is heard on nearly 400 public radio stations across the country, including Minnesota Public Radio.

Johnson joined MPR’s Angela Davis on stage at the Minnesota State Fair to talk about his approach to journalism and what it’s like to host a live daily talk show.
