Release date

The release date of ‘In the Know’ is Thursday, January 25th, 2024.

Plot

As the third most popular host on NPR, Lauren Caspian is a good-hearted but hypocritical nimrod, just like the rest of us. What’s the special twist? Lauren is a stop-motion puppet (or you can say doll).

Each episode of In the Know shows how Lauren’s show is made behind the scenes, with in-depth talks with real people like guests on the show. As the story goes on, Lauren works with a diverse group of NPR employees who, in a strange way, are also mimics and nimrods. The result is a fun and silly look at both the production and the silliness of Lauren Caspian’s world.
