Obama's Years is a two-part radio documentary that explores how life has changed for Americans over the last eight years.

In the first hour Wednesday at 8pm, NPR's Steve Inskeep travels the country to places in which President Obama delivered speeches, and checks in with Americans living in those places to ask about their perspectives on the issues the president discussed. From Denver to Wichita to Philadelphia, audiences will hear people talk about their jobs, aspirations and family life. They'll discuss issues like healthcare, immigration, guns and race relations and how those issues have played into their lives in the last eight year.

In the second hour Thursday at 8pm, Steve Inskeep sits down with President Obama at the White House and asks the president how he thinks the country has changed during his presidency. Inskeep will also talk to the President about the thoughts, ideas and lives of the people he met during the reporting for this documentary.

The NPR News Special Obama's Years airs Wednesday June 29 at 8:00pm and Thursday June 30 at 8:00pm on WITF 89-5 & 93-3.
