Vox Pop

Monday - Friday, 2pm - 3pm

Vox Pop is WAMC's live call-in talk program. Guests with expertise in areas ranging from Astronomy to George Washington speak with WAMC's hosts and answer questions posed by WAMC listeners. We also have a number of forums and guests who are regulars to Vox Pop such as our Science Forum and Gardening program.

Every Monday is a "Medical Monday."  Every Friday is a "Food Friday."

  The Iowa Caucus is two weeks away. It’s the first formal balloting in the 2016 presidential election. As the candidates make their final pitches, voters are starting to make up their minds. And the results will give us the first real picture of who we could see in the White House come January 2017. What do you think? 

Joining us this afternoon for Medical Monday are Drs. Malcolm Paine and Kimberley Sampson. Both are specialists in obstetrics and gynecology with Dartmouth-Hitchcock Putnam Physicians at Southwestern Vermont Medical Center in Bennington. 

Our region boasts some of the finest chefs in the country. And we want to get to know as many of them as possible here on Food Friday. Today we are on with Chef Michael Ballon, owner and executive chef at the Castle Street Cafe in Great Barrington, Massachusetts.
