NPR's Kelly McEvers is marking her one-month anniversary as one of the two new hosts of All Things Considered. She and fellow newcomer Ari Shapiro join Audie Cornish and Robert Siegal.

Kelly got her start right here in Illinois but many of us got to know her work during her time as a reporter on the national desk and as a Middle East correspondent.

All Things Considered Host Melba Lara talked with McEvers about her career covering conflicts around the world, her ties to Illinois, and predictions for her 'Cubbies'.
