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?

"The Measure Of All Things" Live Doc Presentation At MASS MoCA

    Sam Green is an Academy Award nominated documentary filmmaker.

For his most recent film, The Measure of All Things, he was inspired by our collective fascination with The Guinness Book of World Records and traveled across the world to gather footage of record-holding (and nearly record-holding) people and places. The result is a fascinating “live documentary” film and performance featuring video, Green’s live narration and an original live score composed and performed by indie-classical chamber ensemble yMusic.

This special live-documentary experience will be presented at MASS MoCA in North Adams, MA this Saturday at 8:30pm.
