The Pell Center at Salve Regina University will broadcast new weekly episodes of “Story in the Public Square” on Rhode Island PBS and nationally on satellite radio provider SiriusXM P.O.T.U.S. channel 124, according to a news release from Salve Regina University.

The new series will begin the weekend of January 14, 2017.

Hosted by Pell Center Executive Director Jim Ludes and G. Wayne Miller, visiting fellow and director of the Story in the Public Square initiative, the new episodes will feature interviews with today’s best print, screen, music, and other storytellers about their creative processes and how their stories impact public understanding and policy.

“The power of storytelling to shape public life in the United States has never been more obvious,” said Ludes in the release. “We look forward to exploring those issues with audiences, shining light into some dark spaces, and hopefully having some fun along the way.”

“The heart of this show will always be its guests,” said Miller, a staff writer at The Providence Journal, “and each week we’ll bring incredibly talented individuals and their stories to our audiences.”

“Story in the Public Square” airs on Rhode Island PBS in Rhode Island and southern Massachusetts on Sundays at 11 a.m. and is rebroadcast Thursdays at 7:30 p.m. An audio version of the program airs Saturdays at 8:30 a.m. & 6:30 p.m. ET and Sundays at 1:30 a.m. & 12:30 p.m. ET on SiriusXM’s popular P.O.T.U.S. (Politics of the United States), channel 124.

Story in the Public Square is a partnership between the Pell Center and The Providence Journal. The initiative aims to study, celebrate, and tell stories that matter.
