About the station

UN News audio products range from our Monday-Friday ‘News In Brief’, where we summarize the key stories of the day, to our flagship podcast series, ‘The Lid Is On’. We aim to bring you fresh interviews daily with UN agency newsmakers, opinion-formers, academics, NGOs and activists who are working through the UN in pursuit of shared goals such as the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. We will continue with our specialist shows on gender issues and Africa, as part of our expanding stable of in-depth podcasts, which also includes our ‘Podcast Classics’ from the rich audio archive of UN Radio, stretching back to the 1940s.
