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.

Hillary Rodham Clinton is expected to take questions this afternoon from reporters about her use of a private email account while she served as secretary of state. Republicans are saying she avoided transparency and committed an ethical lapse. Could this spell the end of her shot at the White House? And if not Hillary, then who would headline the Democratic ticket?

Joining us in the studio today for Medical Monday is Dr. Cliff Connery. He’s the medical director for the Dyson Center for Cancer Care at Vassar Brothers Medical Center, and medical practice director for HealthQuest’s Division of Thoracic Oncology.

Boston and Buffalo were pummeled and buried, and much of the region has been facing record-breaking and dangerously low temperatures. We welcome NewsChannel 13 meteorologist Jason Gough back to the show to discuss these events and take your weather questions.
