PRI's perspective on genetic genealogy

Roots 2.0: Using DNA to Trace My Ancestry is a feature with audio interviews from  PRI's The World, which bills itself as "global perspectives for an American audience." The presentation is fairly non-technical with emphasis on autosomal DNA testing through 23andMe. PRI producer Carol Zall relates her experience building on an old taped interview with her grandmother.

There are a couple of related blog postings on the site:
