The Roundtable

Weekdays, 9:00am

WAMC's The Roundtable is an award-winning, nationally recognized eclectic talk program. The show airs from 9am to noon each weekday and features news, interviews, in-depth discussion, listener call-ins, music, and much (much) more! Hosted by Joe Donahue and produced by Sarah LaDuke, The Roundtable tackles serious and lighthearted subjects, looking to explore the many facets of the human condition with civility, respect and responsibility.

The show's hallmark is thoughtful interviews with A-list newsmakers, authors, artists, sports figures, actors, and people with interesting stories to tell. Since hitting the airwaves in May of 2001, The Roundtable has interviewed the likes of Arthur Miller, Kurt Vonnegut, Maya Angelou, Madeleine Albright, Jimmy Carter, John McCain, Bob Dole, Bill O'Reilly, Steve Martin, James Taylor, Bill Cosby, Stephen King, Melissa Etheridge and lots of other really cool people. Plus, Wilco does our theme song. What more can you ask for?

Jack Bishop - The Science of Good Cooking

Cook's Illustrated's The Science of Good Cooking

In the past decade a resurgence has occurred in the family home, as more people have become foodies and broadened their palates as they experiment with newly available ingredients. Jack Bishop is the editorial  director of America’s Test Kitchen, and has helped put together everything we’ve wanted to know about The Science of Good Cooking to make sure those newly tweaked recipes are up to snuff. WAMC's Katie Britton spoke about the new cookbook, and how just because he’s an editorial director, doesn’t means he’s not hands-on in the kitchen.
