About Ari Shapiro

All things considered… Ari Shapiro is one of today’s great journalists. As a host of NPR’s flagship drive-time news show All Things Considered, Ari covers the news, comments on current events, interviews the important people of our time, and takes to social media to interact with fans as the stories unfold. Bringing Instagram followers along on his travels through places like Delhi or the backstage of a Pink Martini concert using time lapse videos, @AriShapiro keeps tens of thousands of followers up on his life. This year, he also made Out magazine’s list of the #Out100, proving he is one of the most prominent and respected members of the LGBTQ+ community today.
