Our show on education, is produced and hosted by radio veteran Bob Barrett. The Best of Our Knowledge looks at education from the classroom stand point, as well as the different ways of thinking, and learning on a grander scale.

51% not only discusses the world from a woman’s POV, but also talks to and about people from all walks of life who have made a contribution to society.

The Media Project takes a look at current events in the media, how they’re handled, what the panel might have done differently, and the public’s reaction to the news of the day.

During The Book Show, host Joe Donahue speaks with authors about their work, crafting a fictional story or their life’s tale, their influences, and anything else that may crop up in the free flowing discussion. Authors such as Stephen King, Barbara Kingsolver, Juno Diaz and Richard Russo have been on the program.

Our newest 25-minute program is Person Place Thing. The show is hosted by former Late Night with David Letterman writer, and New York Times “Ethicist” columnist, Randy Cohen. Each show features a guest (usually in front of a live audience) who talks about their favorite person, place and thing. Past guests have included Hank Azaria, Garry Kasparov, Lev Grossman, and R.L. Stine.

We also have 2 daily modules available via Content Depot & FTP.  Earth Wise is a 2-minute segment that looks at our changing environment – from green business and new environmental legislation to how nature impacts our environment in ways never before considered.

In a 2:30 module, The Academic Minute brings listeners the latest in academic research from colleges and universities around the world. Topics range from the newest studies done for Alzheimer’s to how Gekskin is modeled after gecko feet. Our most popular one was on the theories of time travel in relation to Albert Einstein’s Theory of General Relativity’s 100th anniversary. The segment discusses all topics across the academic cannon.

Custom promos are available for all of our programs, and we send quarterly FCC reports for all of our 25-minute shows. Contact pgarrett@wamc.org for further information regarding WAMC’s Nationally Produced Shows
