Stewart hosted the debut season of the TED Radio Hour, named by the editors at iTunes the Best New Audio podcast of 2012.
Alison Stewart has developed a knack for interpreting the unconventional and examining the cutting edge issues of today. From politics to teenage plastic surgery, from nuclear energy issues to food policy, from international conflict to the arts, she has been called a must-hear voice in American journalism – vibrant, compelling, and always engaged.
An outspoken representative of her generation, she helps audiences understand the importance of developments in society and politics, connecting them to broader civic life. Her unique career path began in alternative news and led to prominent positions at all the major news networks. Through it all Stewart has never lost her zeal for news and for helping people figure out this complex world.
