From the latest news out of the Trump White House to Kanye West's latest album, there are so many developments that can take place in a week. But NPR's Sam Sanders is making it easier to keep up.

For the past year, Sanders has hosted the podcast, "It's Been A Minute," which recaps the political and popular culture news of the week with a panel of guests. The program will begin airing on KPBS radio Saturdays at 11 a.m. beginning August 4.

Sanders, who has been called a Kanye West scholar, served as a key member of NPR's 2016 election team, covering the Bernie Sanders campaign.

He talks about the intersection of politics and popular culture and his love and hate relationship with Twitter, Thursday on Midday Edition.
