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?

Alana Chernila - The Homemade Pantry

We can pretty much agree there’s nothing like farm fresh, and making delectable dishes with those ingredients. Heck with hot houses, and the storage mechanisms these days, we can get farm fresh all year round. So it kind of makes you feel bad if you grab that jarred tomato sauce from the pantry… or reach for that pop-tart in the morning to jump start the kid’s day. Well, no more my friends; we can do it all from scratch. (If we’re so inclined.) Alana Chernila has created some of the yummiest recipes for some of our old standbys, and it’s not as hard as you would think.
