I heard a story on terrestrial radio but can’t find it online. What do I do?
Viewpoints Radio has been broadcast around the country since 2000, and therefore we’ve produced and aired thousands of different stories. We’ve done our best to compile a complete record of all segments from 2015 to present. Please also note that several stories have been produced and then later reproduced with updated information, sources, or guests.
We have several methods of searching for specific stories, guests, topics, etc., including our advanced search page, archive of segment terms (including books/publications, genres, guests, institutions/organizations, media, notable figures, and topics), segment finder page, and various filters which can be utilized to make finding the story you’re searching for as easy as possible. If you’re having trouble navigating our site or finding a specific episode, please let us know so we can better assist you.

Where does Viewpoints Radio get its information?
We pride ourselves on adhering to strict journalistic standards and have done so since 2000. Each Viewpoints segment relies on interviews with experts in their fields, published authors, or individuals with direct experience of the relevant topics. For more information on a specific segment’s source information, find it in our segment archives or contact us directly.
Where are all the segment transcripts?
As you’ve may have noticed, only some of the segments on this site have transcripts. We used to produce transcript for nearly every segment but in the past few years have been unable to due to constraints of time and resources. We’re currently in the process of exploring different avenues of producing automated transcripts and, hopefully, will be able to offer segment transcripts again in the near future.
