State of Wonder features interviews and reporting on the latest in visual arts, theater, music, literature, culture and more.

Hosted by April Baer, a seasoned reporter and producer who has been with OPB since 2004, the show includes original stories and content from OPB’s robust arts and culture portfolio including Oregon Art Beat, OPB News, Oregon Experience, Think Out Loud, KMHD jazz radio, opbmusic and Arts & Life.

Baer, along with other OPB arts and culture reporters, will bring you the week's show-stopping stories, ideas and must-see happenings. They will have frank conversations about the economic, social and political currents shaping the creative economy. Equally important, they will showcase what is being created in local communities and how individuals are digesting these creations.

State of Wonder is playful, lighthearted and sometimes irreverent; pointed, curious and informative.

State of Wonder is made possible by a grant from the Paul G. Allen Family Foundation, along with support from the Spirit Mountain Community Fund, US Bank and The Jackson Foundation.

You can tune in every Saturday at noon on OPB Radio and stream it online from opb.org or on mobile devices with the OPB News app. You can also:
